Special polling stations near camps for displaced electors in Manipur, says ECI

| @indiablooms | 16 Mar 2024, 05:24 pm

In view of the recent conflicts in the North Eastern state Manipur and the forthcoming Lok Sabha Election, the Election Commission of India on Saturday said it has reviewed the ground situation and has made arrangements to ensure all registered electors are able to cast their votes.

The Commission has reviewed the ground situation of Manipur and has noted that a large number of electors registered in different constituencies of Manipur were displaced from their native places during recent conflicts.

They are now residing in Relief Camps in various districts of Manipur. The Commission, after due consultation with various stakeholders, has decided that special polling stations shall be set up at/near the camps where such electors, who opt for such facility, will be able to register their votes in EVMs.

In this regard, a detailed scheme for internally displaced persons of Manipur to vote in relief camps has been issued by the Commission on 29th February, 2024, the ECI said in the Schedule of Elections announced today.
