The West Bengal Election Commission is set to introduce the Braille facility for visually-challenged voters in all Assembly constituencies.
“In the 2006 Assembly polls, the facility was introduced only in Kolkata, but this time we have decided to introduce the Braille facility in all the 294 constituencies,” a senior EC official said.
The details would be chalked out in a meeting with the Election Commissioner, he said.
The latest electronic voting machines have been equipped with Braille signs which could be introduced in nearly 70,000 booths all over the State, the official said.
Apart from that, the EC has decided to provide voter slips to the voters at least one day before the election to help the Commission save time.
