Blank affidavit forms shall be furnished by the County Clerk for the purpose aforesaid; but if none are furnished, such canvassers shall cause the same to be drawn, and they shall swear to such affidavit before the Judge of Registration of such precinct or County Clerk, or one of his Deputies.
    Either of the canvassers shall have the power and right of both in the matter pertaining to such canvass; but in case either refuses or neglects to make such canvass as aforesaid, then the other may make such canvass alone.
