AGARTALA: The Election Commission (EC) will take adequate steps to help physically challenged voters, including visually-impaired ones, exercise their franchise, a top official said here on Sunday. “Following the Election Commission’s directives, adequate steps would be taken to facilitate physically challenged voters including visually-impaired electorates to exercise their franchise,” Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Sriram Taranikanti said. He said that visually-impaired voters would be provided with a voting slip in Braille and dummy ballot paper. Those with low vision would be given magnifying glasses and other equipment. “If necessary an impartial person would be allowed as a guide for the visually impaired people with the permission of the authority,” the CEO said.
