SPIRO T. AGNEW, Governor                      1225


In the case of any nominee dying within [(] so short a time
[)] before the day of election that the certificate of nomination of
the new nominee shall not have been filed with or certified to the
board thirty days before the day of election, thus being too late for
the name of the new nominee to be printed on the ballots in any
county or the City of Baltimore, as hereinafter provided, the board
shall at once cause to be printed a sufficient number of stickers
bearing the name of such substitute nominee, and shall deliver the
same in due time to the judges for all those precincts wherein the
nominee may be voted for, and said judges shall affix the stickers in
the proper place on each ballot or ballot label.


(f) In Anne Arundel County, four members of the party State
central committees for the county shall be elected from each of the
three senatorial and delegate subdistricts into which the county is
divided by the provisions of Sections [46] 46C and [47] 47C of
Article 40 of this Code, as amended from time to time.


(b) Ballots shall be printed in black ink in uniform type upon
plain white paper of ordinary book weight. The names of the candi-
dates and their several party designations shall be printed in plain,
clear, bold and legible roman capitals, twelve-point pica type, one
eighth of an inch high or in depth. The back and outside of the

ballots shall be marked "Official ballot for ........................................,"

followed by the designation of the county, congressional, legislative,
councilmanic, or other district, excluding the number or name of the
precinct for which it is prepared, and the ballots shall contain the
date of the election, and a facsimile of the signature of the president
of the board for which the ballots have been prepared. The ballot
shall be printed on the same leaf, with a detachable stub or coupon
one inch high and three inches wide, above the upper right-hand
corner of the ballot, and binding on the upper edge thereof, but
separated therefrom by a line running along the entire width of said
coupon. Upon the coupon shall be printed the words "Voter's Name,"
with a line drawn thereunder for writing the name, and under the
name and under this line the words "Number of Voter," followed
by a blank space for the insertion of a number. Before distribution
the ballot shall be folded in marked creases so that no part of the
marks or printing thereon shall be visible, excepting that which
appears upon the back and outside and the detachable stub or coupon;
and so that the folded ballot shall be of uniform width and length
and proper width to be deposited in the ballot boxes. All ballots
when printed shall be folded as above provided, and fastened to-
gether in convenient numbers in packages, books or blocks, so that
each ballot may be detached and removed separately. Not less than
five days before any election the form and arrangement of the ballot
to be used in the election, showing the offices, names of candidates,
constitutional amendments and questions thereon, shall be [prepare]
prepared by the board and made available for inspection by any
candidate whose name shall appear thereon or the official representa-
tive of any political party having a candidate on such ballot. For a
