Voters of Delhi and Himachal Pradesh would now be able to locate their polling stations and see the satellite image of the building and roads leading to it – thanks to the Election Commission’s new mapping service launched.
The commission’s website, www.eci.nic.in, has added a new tab – Information Linked to Polling Station Maps, which enables people to avail polling station maps online.
Polling station locations of National Capital Territory of Delhi and Himachal Pradesh have already been plotted on maps and can be seen by citizens when they visit the concerned page on the website of Election Commission of India.
According to the commission, polling station maps for the rest of India are being plotted and will be available on the website soon.
On the page, citizens will see the names of states for which maps of polling stations are available. They can select district, assembly constituency and polling station names from drop down lists and click a button to see polling station locations of the selected area on the map viewer on the page.
Users can activate the satellite image layer and even see the polling station buildings and the roads leading to it.
There is also a link provided for electoral rolls. On clicking this link, electoral roll for that polling station opens up and can be saved by the user on his local computer and also printed from the local computer.
