turnout than that derived by the formula.

and Number of Direct Record Electronic (DRE) Units or Precinct Ballot
Counters per Voting Precinct) to determine the necessary personnel,
supplies, and equipment for each precinct (i.e., ballots, election
judges and clerks, voting devices, or machines).
(c) After estimating the need for personnel, supplies,
and equipment for each precinct, the county chair shall combine all
precinct data to determine the total countywide estimate.
(d) The county chair may use the estimate calculated
