Port Blair, April 16: The District Administration, South Andaman has been taking many pro-active steps in reaching out to eligible voters especially senior citizens and divyangjans. In this regard, special drive was undertaken by facilitating postal ballots on 12.04.2024 and 13.04.2024 at their households. Auto and Taxi Associations were also sensitized and advised to provide free ride between their home and Polling Stations. All Polling Stations are made Divyang friendly by providing suitable ramps. Similarly, wheelchairs have also been made available in the Polling Stations.

In another step towards encouraging the voters who are Senior Citizens and Divyang voters to exercise their votes, it has been decided by the District Election Office that suitable transportation facility would be provided free of cost on poll day i.e. on 19th of April, 2024. Eligible voters may register their names by contacting the Toll Free Number ‘1950’ or by submitting their request through the Mobile App ‘SAKSHAM’. Accordingly, the District Administration would make necessary arrangements for providing free pick up and drop facility to the eligible voters.

If any voter has exercised their votes through Postal Votes, they are not entitled to vote again since their names have already been marked in the electoral roll.
