  (2)  Where tallying of write-in votes is to be done at the polling place, certify on two statements of returns the number of write-in votes received by each candidate.  No returns shall be signed in blank or before the polls have closed and all proper write-in votes cast at the polling place have been counted;

  (3)  Certify that each statement made in the tally book and on each statement of returns is correct.  If any judge declines to certify that all such statements are correct, he shall state his reasons in writing, which shall be attached to each statement of returns and returned with the statement to the election authority.
