Even though the temperature has dipped significantly over the last two days,the Chief Electoral Office is worried that high temperatures may lead to a low voter turnout in the Capital.

As a result,a number of measures have been put in place to ensure people come out and vote.

“The Municipal Corporation of Delhi has been instructed to put up shamianas outside all polling booths,so that if people have to wait,they can do so in the shade. Moreover,arrangements have been made for water to be kept in earthen pots at all polling stations,” an official at the Chief Electoral Office said.

Teams of mobile medical vans will also be on standby at various locations should there be an emergency of any sorts.
