The counting of votes for the Bihar Assembly elections has been going on since morning. Election Commission officials told reporters in the national capital that about 4.16 crore votes were cast in the three-phase election, out of which more than one crore votes were counted by 1:30 pm. Out of the total electorate of around 7.3 crore in Bihar, 57.09 percent exercised their franchise.
An official said that there was no technical problem in the counting of votes. The Commission had increased the number of polling stations this time as compared to the 2015 assembly elections, to follow the Kovid-19 global epidemic rule to maintain social distance. Earlier, around 65,000 polling stations were set up in the 2015 election, which was increased to 1.06 lakh this time. Due to this, electronic voting machines (EVMs) also had to be used more.
This time the number of voters at each polling station was fixed from 1,000 to 1,500, to ensure social distance. For this the number of polling stations had to increase. Deputy Election Commissioner in-charge of Bihar Chandra Bhushan Kumar said, “We hope that the counting of votes will be finished tonight as per the process.” He said that the counting of votes in the 2015 assembly elections was held at 38 places, but this time social Counting is being done at 55 sites to ensure distance. Kumar said, “There is no question of slowing down the counting of votes. '
This time the number of tables in each hall has been reduced from 14 to seven. In such a situation, the number of places of results has also increased. Bhushan said that counting of votes would be done in 19 to 51 rounds in different constituencies, which would average 35 rounds. Deputy Election Commissioner Sudeep Jain, in charge of EVMs, while replying to questions from some people regarding the reliability of EVMs, said that the machine could have “no tampering” and the Supreme Court has at times justified the use of this device. .
