The superintendent, his chief deputy or assistants, shall have the power, when in his or their judgment it is deemed necessary at any election, upon the completion of the counting and canvassing of the ballots by any district board, to enter any place containing ballot boxes for the purpose of taking possession and sealing any ballot box or boxes with a seal to be adopted by the superintendent.
