Consolidation of Elections.
Where under any law of the state the precincts, polling places or names of members of precinct boards are required to be described or otherwise set forth in the ordinance, resolution, order, notice or other document calling, giving notice of or otherwise pertaining to any election, and the election is consolidated, in whole or in part, with another election, the ordinance, resolution, order, notice or other document need not describe or set forth the precincts, polling places and the names of precinct board members pertaining to the territory affected by the consolidation but may instead state that these precincts, polling places, and precinct board members shall be the same as those provided for the other election within the territory affected by the consolidation, and in that event, the ordinance, resolution, order, notice, or other document shall refer to some ordinance, order, resolution, or notice calling, providing for or giving notice of the other election and which sets forth these precincts, polling places, and the names of precinct board members. This reference may be made by giving the number and title or date of adoption of the ordinance, resolution, or order, or the date or proposed date of any publication of the notice and the name of the newspaper in which the notice has been or will be published, or by any other definite description. Notwithstanding the provision of any other provision of law, this reference need not be made in the case of an election consolidated with a statewide election.
