    Confusion over counting as AP receives record 5,39,189 postal ballots

    The ECI has started counting arrangements for the record number of 5,39,189 postal ballot votes in Andhra Pradesh.

    Hyderabad District Election authorities have made efforts to increase the voting percentage in the upcoming polls. In the previous elections, the average voter turnout in Hyderabad was less than 50 percent.

They have distributed Voter Information Slips (VIS) and voter guides. They have also introduced voter helpline apps, the ECI website, toll-free number 1950, c-VIGIL app, and evidence app. Special arrangements have been made for disabled and senior citizens on the polling day.
