EC ensured that even the most isolated citizens exercised their voting rights

In a remote area in Gir forest, a priest’s solitary vote achieved a 100% turnout at the Banej polling station during the third phase of the Lok Sabha elections held on May 7. 

The country’s commitment to democracy led polling officials to set up a booth for one resident in spite of challenges.  The Election Commission took proactive measures to ensure democratic representation by establishing a polling booth in Banej village, nestled deep within the Gir forest, specifically to accommodate the solitary voter residing there. 

The Election Commission’s dedication to inclusivity, in spite of geographical challenges, ensured that even the most isolated citizens could exercise voting rights.

Importance of a single vote 

The priest, Mahant Haridasji Udasin, arrived at the polling station early in the voting period to exercise his franchise marking a significant moment in the electoral process. This practice is a standard protocol during every Assembly or general election planned by the EC.

Polling officers embarked on a two-day trip, navigating through rough forest terrain to facilitate the priest’s participation in the democratic process. Despite the remote location, electoral laws ensure no eligible voter is left behind. 

The solitary voter’s participation underscored the essence of democracy, reaffirming the significance of every individual’s role in the electoral process.
