Mumbai Police has released instructions for the upcoming Biennial Elections 2024, happening on June 26. The guidelines include information on restrictions throughout the city during the election period.

On Friday, June 21, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations) Akbar Pathan issued a preventive order to maintain public peace and smooth voting. The order states that from 6 am to midnight on June 26, only candidates, accredited agents, election officials, and public servants on duty are allowed within 100 metres of polling stations.

A significant number of voters are expected to visit polling stations to vote in the Legislative Council Biennial Elections for the Constituencies of Mumbai Teachers and Mumbai Graduates.

The police have said that no one should roam or form groups near polling stations. This rule is to prevent any disruption or interference with the election process. The goal is to protect individuals lawfully engaged in election activities.

Voters must form two lines at polling places: one for men and one for women. Each voter must enter the polling station in sequence based on their position in line. Entry will be managed according to the presiding officer's instructions.

The 100-metre area around polling stations, known as the "Polling Stations neighbourhood," is restricted to make order. Only observers designated by the commission and authorised election police officials can access this area. This regulation is in line with Section 130 of the Representation of People Act 1951.
