Pakyong, April 7 (IPR): On the fourth day of the Home Voting in Pakyong District, absentee voters in the senior citizen category (AVSC), aged 85 and above, and absentee voters belonging to the Persons with Disabilities (PwD) category (AVPD) utilised the Election Commission of India’s (ECI) Home Voting to cast their votes conveniently from their residences.
Following the conclusion of the Home Voting process, accompanied by their Sector Officer, the team submitted their Postal Ballots (PB) to the respective Assistant Returning Officers (AROs), securely storing them in the strong room at Dikling Senior Secondary School.
The security systems for Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in the strong room are extensive, with a three-tier system of security measures. This features 24/7 CCTV surveillance and double-sealing. The innermost cordon is secured by SSB, the middle cordon by SAP/IRBN, and the outer cordon by civil police.
A total of 340 eligible voters from the AVSC (85+) category and the AVPD (PwD) category are expected to cast their votes across different assembly constituencies within Pakyong district.
