New Delhi, Nov 26 (UNI) More than 11,000 homeguards from Uttar Pradesh and Haryana will be on election duty in the Delhi Assembly polls to be held on November 29.

While around 7,000 homeguards will come from Haryana, 4,000 homeguards will be called from Uttar Pradesh. Electronic voting machines are also being checked thoroughly so that no snag takes place in them on the Election Day.

The city has been divided into 1130 sectors where polling will take place on 2510 premises, sources said.

A close eye is also being kept that the Model Code of Conduct is not violated and loudspeakers being used in electioneering are also being switched off at 2200 hrs, the obligatory time limit of canvassing, every day.

The leaves of all election employees have also been cancelled.

Counting of votes polled in 69 seats will be taken up on December 8.

One seat, Rajinder Nagar, will go to the polls on December 13 as the election to this seat was earlier cancelled following the death of the BJP candidate.
