101.72  Booths.--

(1)  In any county in which voting booths or compartments are used, the supervisor of elections shall provide at least one voting booth or compartment for each 125 registered electors in the county. The supervisor of elections shall determine the actual number of booths or compartments to be used in each precinct at each election. In determining the number of booths or compartments to be used in each precinct, the supervisor shall take into consideration the traditional voting patterns of such precinct and shall furnish the number of booths or compartments necessary to handle efficiently the number of anticipated electors in the precinct. Each booth or compartment shall be furnished with a shelf or table for the convenience of electors in preparing their ballots and shall be so arranged that it will be impossible for one elector in one compartment to see an elector in another in the act of marking his or her ballot. Each voting table or shelf shall be kept supplied with conveniences for marking the ballots.

(2)  If a county utilizes a voting system which does not require the use of a voting booth or compartment as an integral part of voting, the minimum number of booths or compartments need not be provided.
