It shall be the duty of the chairman of the board of inspectors of each election district, on the first day of registration, to appoint one of the inspectors of opposite political faith to be the custodian of the enrollment box. In election districts where personal registration is required, the box shall be returned to the custodian of primary records immediately after the last day of registration. In districts where personal registration is not required the box shall be returned to the custodian of primary records within twenty-four hours after the close of the polls on general election day, by the inspector designated to deliver the returns.
