A polling station for just four voters in Chhattisgarh

Koriya (Chhattisgarh): There will be one polling station in Chhattisgarh for just four voters, out of which three are from the same family. This will be in Sherandandh village of the  Bharatpur-Sonhat Assembly, Koriya District Election Officer N K Dugga said.

Koriya District Election Officer N K Dugga said the polling party will reach there a day before polls and set a tent for voters.

The Election Commission of India( ECI) is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that every eligible citizen casts their vote in the upcoming Assemblies elections, even if the number of electors is in single digits.

Dugga said the polling party will reach there a day before polls and set a tent for voters.

To reach Sherandandh, a forest village, the ECI team will have to go an extra mile through rocky mountains for five to six kilometres and cross a river. The village, which is dependent on Panchayat Chandha, is situated around 15 km from the main road.

Due to the unavailability of proper roads, the election officials will be reaching the booth a day before the voting.

In Chhattisgarh, voting will be held in two phases. In the first phase, voting will be held in 18 constituencies in the southern part of the state on November 12, while the second phase of elections will be held on November 20.

Counting of votes for both the phases will take place on December 11.
