Gadwal District Collector Valluru Kranthi has announced that additional Ballot Units (BUs) for the Gadwal and Alampur constituency will be randomized and sent to the constituency based on their serial numbers. This decision was made during a video conference held at the Collectorate with political parties and candidates present. The collector explained that since there are 20 candidates contesting in the Gadwala constituency, two ballot units will be set up.
The first randomization of ballot units was done in the presence of political party representatives. The collector informed that instead of the current 338 ballot units, 378 units have been allotted for the constituency. These units are now being moved to the strong room at Priyadarsini Degree College.
The returning officers of the respective constituencies will educate voters about using votes through the ballot units. The collector also mentioned that EVM godowns will be opened in the presence of political party representatives and participating candidates. The returning officers will check the ballot units based on their serial numbers before transferring them to the strong room.
The program was attended by Additional Collector Apoorva Chauhan, Election Superintendent Naresh, representatives from various political parties, and others.
