Provided, however, that upon a resolution adopted by the County Board of Elections a precinct may encompass territory from more than one township. When such a resolution has been adopted by the County Board of Elections to assign voters from more than one township to the same precinct, then the County Board of Elections shall maintain registration and voting records, consistent with the procedure prescribed by the State Board of Elections, so as to properly identify the township in which such voters reside."
