Voter Assistance Booths to help voters on polling day would be set up by the administration at all polling booths in West Bengal’s Burdwan district.
The Booths to be manned by female employees would also issue voter slips which would bear the photograph of voters, Burdwan District Magistrate and District Election Officer Saumitra Mohan told PTI.
This will spare voters from going to such booths set up by political parties to check their names on the voters list and be issued voter slips, he said. All polling stations in the district would have drinking water, sunshades, first aid box, separate toilets for male and female voters, sitting arrangement for voters particularly senior citizens and physically challenged voters, Mohan said.
