An election commission is hereby created, consisting of the town clerk and two electors of the town. Neither of the two electors during their term of office shall be town officers or employees or candidates or nominees for elective town office. These two electors shall be appointed by the council in May following a regular town election, for a term of two (2) years and shall serve without compensation.

The town clerk shall be chairman. The election commission shall have charge of all activities and duties required of it by statute and this charter relating to the conduct of elections in the town. In any case where election procedure is in doubt, the election commission shall prescribe the procedure to be followed.

The commission shall provide procedures to establish proof of residency qualification where residency is in question. Upon a showing for good cause, the election commission may require proof of residency by any person registered to vote or attempting to register to vote in the town of Breckenridge. Said person shall not be qualified to vote in any municipal election until the election commission is satisfied that he has presented sufficient proof of residency as required by statute or ordinance adopted pursuant to this charter.

The election commission shall provide for ballots and sample ballots, voting machines or electronic voting equipment for determination of the winner by lot in the event of a tie vote, for canvass of returns and for the issuance of appropriate certificates.
