The recognised centres can be used to provide training regarding the use of EVMs and will reveal the roles and responsibilities of sector officers and polling officials. The commission is set to bring in experts to provide the best possible training so that a free and fair election can be conducted.

Earlier, government schools, ITIs, and so on were selected for the counting centers. This time, strong rooms have been hired so that EVMs can be stored safely.

The commission has been focusing on the service personnel, who can cast their vote despite their deployment on election-related duties.

A huge number of police personnel will be deployed on duty during the day of the election, so special arrangements have been made so that those policemen who are on election duty can cast their respective votes with ease.
