Paragraph III.C. of the Lex Vedia de Ratione Suffragiorum is hereby amended to read as follows:

Within 48 hours of the deadline for voting, the diribitores shall tally the votes and shall deliver the results to the magistrate who called the comitia to order and his collegial magistrate. Votes may be tallied by automated means should the diribitores determine such is preferable to, and at least as accurate as, a manual count. Only the aggregate votes of the tribes and/or centuries (as appropriate) shall be delivered; the votes of individual citizens shall be secret. The magistrates shall announce the results of the vote within 24 hours of receipt, in at least the same fora as the initial announcement was made.

The Lex Equitia de Vigintisexviris of 2757 transferred the election-related duties formerly assigned to the rogatores and distributed them between the diribitores and the custodes; now the rogatores are registrars of new citizens working in conjunction with the censor(es). In accordance with this law and praetorian edictum, the title rogator originally in this law has been replaced with that of diribitor.
