AGO 1953 NO. 174 > Nov 25 1953

The 1953 legislature in fixing a different date for election of diking and drainage district commissioners than that provided for by the earlier consolidated election law impliedly repealed the consolidated election act to the extent of the inconsistency between them.  Jurisdiction to supervise and conduct such elections formerly vested in the county auditor ex officio is now vested in the commissioners of such districts.
