Poll booth management given top priority
New Delhi, Dec 3: As the campaigning for the Delhi assembly elections came to a close on Monday, the parties shifted their focus onto other important aspects of the elections- mainly poll booth management.

In a bid to woo voters and to ensure a high voter turnout, the parties have been busy training party workers to manage poll booths. While the BJP and the Congress are pretty familiar with the process, newbie Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is busy organising indoor meetings for the same.

At the training sessions, workers are taught how the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) works, ensure that the correct person is voting and to report any unusual activity to the concerned person.

1.19 crore Delhiites are expected to vote on December 4

BJP on the other hand, is forming a team of 30 per booth and karyakartas are being trained on the operation of the EVMs.

The party is also keeping a close tab on whether voters have got their voter slips or not and duties have been assigned to workers in each poll booth.

Micro management seems to be on every party's mind, with the Congress too following the same. Congress has also assigned duties to workers at booths and training has been given out to all agents, who have their duties clearly defined.

In the assembly elections in other states, there were reports that some EVMs were not working and had to be replaced. But looks like Delhi is taking all the precautions and wants a problem free polls on Wednesday.

1.19 crore Delhiites are expected to vote on December 4 to elect a new government.
