In the Lok Sabha elections 2014, a total of 1221 polling stations will be functional, out of which 8,588 are hypersensitive and the Election Commission (EC) has deployed additional security forces over there. The EC has pressed a team of engineers of Electronics Corporation of India Limited and Bharat Electronics Limited for foolproof rechecking of all the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), as some of them were found malfunctioning, as reported by TOI.
This time the political parties are keen on bringing up youth, and raise the prospectus of a leader born after independence becoming the Prime Minister. The number of voters have increased to about 814 millions, and there is 12 per cent increase in number of poll stations. And the voters will be using the 'None of the Above' (NOTA) option in the EVMs for the first time in Lok Sabha elections.
