Paragraph IV. of the Lex Vedia de Vigintisexviris is hereby amended to read as follows:

Rogatores.

Four rogatores (voting officials) shall be responsible for the administration of elections and the recording of votes among the curia. Each rogator shall have the authority to appoint his own scribae, should he deem it necessary. Should one or more positions be vacant, and suitable and willing candidates are available, an election shall be held within thirty days in the comitia populi tributa; otherwise the Senate shall have the authority to appoint rogatores pro tempore until such an election can be held. The lack of a full complement of, or the active participation of, four rogatores shall not in and of itself be sufficient to invalidate or postpone a particular election, and the rogatores may divide their duties amongst themselves as they see fit and is practical. Inasmuch as they, by definition, are privy to the details of the election process, the rogatores may not run for any office while they serve in office (including running for rogator again).

[The Lex Equitia de Vigintisexviris of 2757 supersedes this. Since it took effect in January 2758, there have been two rogatores, who are responsible for new citizen registration under the direction of the censor(es). The election-related duties formerly assigned to the rogatores are now divided between the diribitores, who count votes, and the custodes, who break ties and certify elections.]
