Election Commission of India to make voting booths accessible to people with disabilities
October 5, 2016
The Election Commission of India is working towards making the election system accessible for people with disabilities.
This comes after a ballot paper in Braille was introduced as a test for the visually-impaired.
The Election Commission wants to make changes at voting booths so that people with disabilities can come to vote without any problems.
The aim is to include them in the voting process and increase the percentage of voting.
The ECI has given instructions to local officers to create a database of people with disabilities and make sure that polling stations have facilities for them.
