Voting rules changed! postal ballot for people over 65, Covid patients

Jul 02, 2020 18:42 IST

The Election Commission on Thursday extended the postal ballot facility for electors above the age of 65 years and for those who are Covid-19 positive or are suspected to have contracted the virus. In a notification issued by the Ministry of Law and Justice, the government said that people who are under home or institutional quarantine due to coronavirus infection can exercise their voting rights through postal ballot. In several health advisories, people over the age of 65 have been asked not to venture out as they are particularly vulnerable to catching the highly contagious virus.
