Ottapalam: The voters always have the same question on the polling day: ‘Is there a long queue at the polling booth?’ Everyone wants to cast their vote without waiting for so long. This time, the voters in Palakkad can easily know the status of the queue at the polling booths through a webpage ‘Polling Booth Queue Status 2019’ developed by the district administration.
The voters can check the rush at the booth through the site www.infopkd.gov.in initiated by National Informatics Centre. This facility can be utilised through mobile phones and computers.
The number of persons in the queue at every booth in the district is updated every 30 minutes. The page also allows to know the number of persons in the queue for ladies and gents separately. With this facility, the voters can check the webpage and arrive at the booth when the queue is shorter.
The booth level offices are entrusted with the responsibility of counting the number of persons in both ladies and gents queue and update the webpage every 30 minutes. The training for the officers for this purpose has already begun. The website will start functioning from the polling day which falls on April 23.
