The Election Commission (EC) has proposed that voters who are at polling booths close to the closing time at national elections should be allowed to cast their votes and as such they intend to amend the election law to this effect.
Currently, when closer to the closing time at polling booths, only the voters who had been issued a ballot paper are allowed to vote, but not the others.
Hence, as per the new law proposed by the EC, all voters at polling booths, near to the closing time of polls, will be allowed to cast their vote.
