The government has issued a notification, amending Rule 23 of the Conduct of Elections Rules, 1961, enabling service voters, including armed forces personnel, to cast their vote in elections through e-postal ballot.

Under this system, a blank postal ballot paper would be transmitted to them electronically.

This would cut short the delay experienced in the present system in two-way transmission of ballot paper by the postal services.

The armed forces personnel serving in remote and border areas would be greatly benefitted since the present system of two-way transmission of ballot paper by the postal services has not been able to meet the expectations of the service voters.
