19-1619.Copies of register; vote of certain persons not received; challenges. After said lists shall have been fully completed, and within three days of said second meeting of said board, they shall cause four copies of the same to be made, each of which shall be certified by them to be a correct list of legal electors of their voting precinct, one of which shall be within said time filed in the office of the township clerk of the township in which said precinct is located, and one of which copies shall be delivered to each of said judges. It shall be the duty of said judges so receiving such lists to carefully preserve the same for their use on election day, and to designate one of their number at the opening of the polls to check the name of every voter voting in such precinct whose name is on the register. No vote shall be received at any such election, if the name of the person offering to vote be not on said register as corrected, unless the person offering to vote shall furnish to the judges of the election his affidavit, in writing, stating therein that he is an inhabitant of said precinct, and entitled to vote therein at such election, and prove by the affidavit of a householder and registered voter of the precinct in which he offers to vote, that he knows such person to be an inhabitant of the precinct, giving the residence of such person within said precinct.

The oath may be administered by any one of the judges of said election at the poll where the vote shall be offered, or by any other person authorized to administer oaths; but no person shall be authorized or allowed to receive compensation for administering said oath. Said oaths shall be preserved and filed in the office of the township clerk of the township in which such precinct is situated. Any person, whether his name shall be on said list of voters or not, may be challenged by the judge or any legal elector, and the same oaths shall be put as now are or hereafter may be prescribed by law.
