When the registrar admits any one to registration he must enter in the proper column of the "Elector's Register” the number, the name in full, (except any middle name which may be by initial) date of registry, age, place of nativity and residence of the elector so admitted. The residence must be so described by giving the house, street, ward, or part of the precinct he resides in, that it may be easily found; also it shall be stated, if a naturalized citizen, whether or not he produced his certificate and the registrar may, in the column of remarks add any pertinent notes.

He must also enter the names, with statements similar to the above, of all persons who are refused registration in the books kept for that purpose, and therein state the reason of such refusal.

During the time between the last day of registration and the day of election each registrar must prepare for his "Elector's Register” two “check lists” of all the names registered by him, arranged alphabetically according to the surname, placing on the left of the name the same number it bears in the "Elector's Register," and on the right of the column of names a blank column in which to indicate by the word "voted” when the elector votes; said “check lists” must have a heading showing for and what election it was prepared and used; they must be carefully prepared without interlineations, in legible writing or typewriting, certified and sworn to by the registrar, and, not later than the day next preceding the election, he must deliver to one of the judges of election of his precinct his “Elector's Register,” and the register containing the names of those refused registration and to each of the other two judges, who are not of the same political party, a copy of said “check lists” and such judges must, as the electors vote write the word “voted” opposite their names in said "check lists" while the clerks of election keep the record of the electors voting as elsewhere provided in the election law.
