The Commission had decided to hold these bye-elections to fill vacancies.
The Commission used EVMs and VVPATs in the bye-elections in all the polling stations. Adequate numbers of EVMs and VVPATs have been made available and all steps have been taken to ensure that the polls are conducted smoothly with the help of these machines. Electoral Photo Identity cards (EPIC) were the main document of identification of a voter.
In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, all polling personnel and election officials including the private persons engaged in the election duty were double vaccinated before taking their services.
One health worker was appointed as COVID nodal officer for each polling station. Officials at booths were asked to take enough preventive measures and make necessary arrangements to ensure that no poll-related violence occurred during pre and post-poll. In the light of the advisory issued by the Health Ministry, ECI kept a close watch on the evolving situation.
