“ETA POLLING STATION” BY WOMEN PERSONNEL AS MODEL POLLING STATION IN MANIPUR

Manipur entered the history books, with the state being the first in the country to introduce all-women polling booths in an entire assembly constituency of Yaiskul. While such booths were set up in other places too, Manipur takes the cake by having an entire assembly segment managed completely by women poll officers. Out of the total 1300 Polling Stations, 127 Polling Stations were manned completely by women polling personnel only. Aside from the State forces, a total of 45 Central Paramilitary forces companies were tasked with the security arrangements during the poll. It may be mentioned that out of the 1300 total Polling Stations, 47 were classified as vulnerable and 62 as critical. A total of 559 Polling Stations (98 in Imphal West, 152 in Imphal East, 64 in Bishnupur and 45 in Thoubal) had live web casting during the poll.
