101.36  Voting machines or electronic or electromechanical voting; when used.--In counties that have adopted voting machines or electronic or electromechanical voting, the machines or voting devices shall be so arranged as to require individual voting for all offices. The order in which the ballot is arranged shall as nearly as practicable conform to the requirements of the form of the paper ballot. The voting machines or devices shall be used by the counties in all general, primary, and special elections. In counties above 260,000 population, according to the latest federal census, which have adopted the use of voting machines or electronic or electromechanical voting, it shall be mandatory for all municipalities in such counties to use such voting machines or devices in all elections, but in all counties of lesser population it shall be optional with each municipality as to whether it shall use ballots or voting machines or devices in its elections. Authority is hereby granted to the board of county commissioners of any county that has adopted voting machines or electronic or electromechanical voting to permit municipalities within the county to use county-owned voting machines or devices and to permit public agencies, private organizations, and others to use such machines or devices on a rental basis, upon such terms and conditions as the board may determine.
