EC puts up candidate info outside polling centres
Mumbai- In a first, the Election Commission has put up information about all candidates contesting from that ward on boards outside the polling centres.
This information is being made public in this fashion for the first time, and is expected to help undecided voters to make up their minds when they reach to ink their fingers. The boards, put up outside each centre, detail all the candidates' eduction, assets and criminal backgrounds (if any).
The EC believes that such information will help increase voter awareness and help reduce the inclusion of persons with criminal records in the civic body.
