The primary election officers and clerks shall be chosen by the Department of Elections from among the election officers and clerks selected for the general election for the election district or districts contained in the primary election district, and for each such primary election district the election officers and clerks shall be divided as equally as possible between the two principal parties except that in the event that there is a contest in only one party in a primary election district, all the primary election officers and clerks for that district shall be persons whose party affiliation, as shown upon his original permanent registration record, is the same as the party holding the primary contest.
