May 9, 2018
Karnataka will vote on 12 May to form a new government.
For the first time, three polling booths in Mysuru district will be managed exclusively by disabled people! Officials at these booth will take charge without any other help.
This is being done to send out the message that disabled people deserve equal status and opportunities in society, not sympathy.
Booth number 213 at Haniyamballi in Varuna constituency, booth number 75 at Shiramalli in Nanjangud, and booth number 86 at PU College in Shivapura in Krishnaraja constituency have been identified as People with Disabilities Polling Stations.
Authorities say they will soon identify the disabled people who will manage these booths.
