An Election Scene
In India, elections are held every five years all over the country. The whole country is divided into constituencies. From each of these constituencies, candidates belonging to various political parties stand for elections. The people have to select one of these to the State Assemblies or to the Parliament. On the assigned day of the elections, people queue up before their respective polling booths. These booths are built by the administration in order to facilitate the process of polling by the general people. All the election areas are covered by the flags and posters of the party candidates. Inside the booth, the presiding and the polling officials sit. They issue the ballot papers after verifying the particulars of the voters. The voter in turn goes to a secluded corner and puts a stamp on the symbol of the candidate he desires should win. He then folds the ballot paper and puts it inside the ballot box. Various observers belonging to different political parties are also there inside the booth. Their presence is necessary to free the polling from the act of any bias which might be shown by the officers inside the booth. A hundred meters away from the polling booth are the tents of the political parties. Here the party workers issue a slip bearing the name and the number of the voter.
