We all are familiar with the fact that Gujarat Gram Panchayat Elections are not carried out on the basis of party symbols. Every one of the contesting candidate is entitled to get any election symbol of their own choice. The authorities have put forward a list of different election symbols that a candidate may choose from. Since the election is being carried out for the posts of Panchayat members and Sarpanch, every one of the voters require casting two individual votes, that are, one vote for both designations.
It was initially proposed that the elections would be carried out using Electronic Voting Machines (EVM). However this proposition could not be put to work as the state did not have enough number of such machines to be used in every single polling station. That’s why the polling is supposed to be carried out using the traditional means of ballot boxes. 61,000 ballot boxes would be distributed among different polling stations in this regard. This election would also introduce the NOTA option which might be used by the voters in case they believe that no candidate is good enough for the post.
