One registry book, which shall be denominated “Public Register” on the outside or on the first page, shall be prepared in such a manner as to contain only the two columns headed “Residence” and “Name.” No other entries shall be made in the public registry, except the statements of the names and residences of persons registered. Said board of registry shall then proceed as follows: First—They shall open the registry at eight o'clock A. M. and continue in session until nine o’clock P. M. on registration days. One of the judges shall administer to all persons who shall personally apply to register, the following oath or affirmation: “You do solemnly swear (or affirm) that you will fully and truly answer all such questions as shall be put to you touching your place of residence, name, place of birth, your qualifications as an elector, and your right as such, to register and vote under the laws of this State.” Second—Each of said clerks of election and one of said judges of election shall have charge of the registry books, and shall make the entries therein required by this Act, and one of the judges shall ask the questions as to qualifications, and after he is through, either of the judges may ask questions. As many questions may be asked by any judge as may be deemed necessary to fully determine the qualification of the applicant to register, and any answer that is deemed material and that is not in response to a question provided for on the register, may be stated in the column headed “Remarks.” One of the judges of election may, when necessary, relieve one of the clerks, from time to time as necessity may seem to demand, in making entries in said book. Third—The name of every applicant shall be entered in such registry books, and all the facts shall be therein stated, as hereinafter provided, whether he be entitled to vote or not. If it shall be determined by the board that he is not a qualified voter in such precinct, then an entry shall be made in the appropriate column. “No,” and if qualified, an entry shall be made in the same column “Yes.” Fourth—Only such male persons of the age of twenty-one years, residing in such precinct, as apply personally for registration, shall be entered in such registers; but every applicant who would be twenty-one years of age on the day of next election, if otherwise qualified, shall be entered on such registers. Every applicant who has commenced to reside in such precinct at least thirty days before such election shall be entered in such registry and shall be marked “qualified” or “disqualified,” as the case may be; but unless, on the day of election, he shall have resided for thirty full days in such election precinct, he can not vote therein, although otherwise qualified. Fifth–The headings to the registry book shall be so prepared that the registry shall be made alphabetically, according to the surname of each person applying, but it shall be arranged so that the residences of such persons shall appear in the first column. The register shall be ruled, and one name shall be written on each line, but no names shall be written between the lines. The entries shall be as follows: First—Under the column “Residence” the name and number of the street, avenue, or other location of the dwelling, if there be a definite number, and if there shall not be a number, such clear and definite description of the place of such dwelling as shall enable it to be readily

ascertained. If there shall be more than one house at the number given by the applicant as his place of residence, state in which house he resides. And if there be more than one family residing in said house, either the floor on which he resides, or the number, or location of the room or rooms occupied by him, whether front or rear; every floor below the level of the street or ground being designated as the basement; the first floor above that as the second or such other floor as it may be. If there shall be a flat building or an apartment house at the number given, state the number of the flat or apartment, as the case may be, in which he resides. Second—Under the column “Name,” the name of the applicant, writing the surname first, and given or Christian name after. Third—Under the column “Nativity,” the State, country, kingdom, empire or dominion, as the fact stated by applicant shall be. Fourth—Under the subdivision of the general column “Term of Residence,” the periods by days, months or years stated by the applicant . respectively, as to “At Present Address,” “Precinct,” “County,” “State,” and the “United States.” Under the subdivision headed “At Present Address,” the term of applicant's residence at the street and number given, and if that period is less than thirty days prior to the day of election, then the applicant shall state at what location in the same precinct he resided immediately prior thereto, and the length of time, which statement shall be entered in the column headed “Remarks.” Fifth—Under the column “Age,” the age of the applicant. Under “Naturalized,” the word “Yes,” according to the fact stated. Sixth–Under the column “Date of Papers,” the date of naturalization, if naturalized, or about the date. Seventh—Under the column “Court,” the designation of the court in which, if naturalized, such naturalization was had ; and, if the name of the court can not be had with certainty, then the name of the place in which such court was located. Eighth—Under the column “By Act of Congress,” the word “Yes,” in case such person, though foreign born, has been made a citizen by Act of Congress, without taking out his naturalization papers. Ninth—Under the column “Qualified Voter,” the word “Yes,” or “No,” as the facts shall appear, or be determined by a majority of the board of registry, it being, however, required of them to designate as a qualified voter any male person who, if otherwise qualified, shall not, at the time of making application, be of age: Provided, the time when such applicant shall be of the age of twenty-one shall be subsequent to the date of his application and not later than the day of election immediately following such time of applying; but no applicant shall be designated as a qualified voter who having been challenged has not filed with said board of registry his affidavit of qualification, according to the provisions of this Act. Tenth—Under the column “Date of Application,” the month, day and year, when the applicant presented himself and was adjudged a qualified voter in election precinct. Eleventh—Under the column “Residence When Last Registered,” the name and number of the street or avenue from which applicant was last registered, in the same city, village or town, and the month and year in which the election was held for which such registration was

made. If the applicant has not previously been registered in said city, village or town, state “first registration.” APPROVED June 28th, 1915.
