AIZAWL, Nov 3: A total of 7,671 people have voted in the Mizoram assembly
elections through home voting and postal ballot facilities, an election official
said.
Out of these, 1,998 votes have been cast through home voting and 5,673 votes
were polled through postal ballots, additional chief electoral officer H Lianzela
said in a statement.
Polling for the 40-member assembly will be held on November 7, and the votes

Home voting facility is offered to people of 80 years and above along with

Aizawl at 1,654. It is followed by 1,114 votes in Lunglei and 1,064 votes in
Lawngtlai, the statement said.
“Data received from different districts could not be compiled properly due to
the difference in the schedule of conducting home voting and postal ballot
through facilitation centre in various districts,” Lianzela said.
He further said that the full bench of the Election Commission held a video
conference with the officials of the Mizoram government along with those
from the other four poll-bound states — Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh,
