In cities, every elector, at the time of offering his vote, shall truly state the street in which he resides, and if the house, lodging or tenement in which he resides is numbered, the number thereof. And the clerks of the polls, in case the name of such elector is not registered, shall truly enter, in the appropriate column of the poll list, opposite the name of the elector, the street and number, or other description of the residence of such elector. In case of the refusal to make the statement as aforesaid, the vote of such an elector shall not be received.

Any person who shall willfully make any false statement in relation thereto shall upon conviction thereof be punished by a fine of fifty dollars, or by imprisonment in the county jail for a period of ten days, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
