Fiscal Note

                     This reorganization of boundaries will result in an estimated eight additional polling places.  For each of these polling places, $1,000 will be needed for the purchase of a used vote tabulator, $2,000 for a used Automark machine, and $664 for tabulator and Automark maintenance agreements.  Total equipment related costs are therefore estimated at $3,664 per location, or $29,312 for the entire City.

                     In additional, voters must be notified of polling location changes.  Notification costs per voter are estimated at $0.40.  As one-quarter to one-third of the City's 172,000 registered voters will likely require notification, these costs should be expected to range from $17,200 to $22,933.

                     Total costs can therefore be expected to range from $46,512 to $52,245.  Funding is not currently available within the Clerk's Office budget, and will be sought as a supplemental appropriation later in the year.
