EC to bolster voter education for 2nd phase local election
The Election Commission is to make the voter education for the second-phase of local election more effective and profound according to RSS source
Joint Secretary of the Election Commission Nawaraj Dhakal said that learning from the first-phase election, voter education on the process and way of voting would be imparted to the voters using the genuine ballot paper at the polling stations.
The second-phase local level election is taking place at 461 local levels in 43 districts of Province Nos. 1, 2, 5 and 7 on June 14.
The Election Commission is to conduct mock election based on sample ballot paper as well as stage street drama to encourage the voters to participate in the election, Dhakal said.
The Commission has assigned at least one social mobilizer, a female health volunteer and a teacher at every voting centre as voter educators.
The EC is also intensifying the voter education through the media in the local languages including Awadhi, Bhojpuri, Limbu among others to minimize the number of invalid votes.
