  • One counting-room would be reserved for counting ballots of 6,000 voters this time due to health guidelines

By Kelum Bandara   

The Election Commission has decided to halve the number of votes to be counted at a single counting room, an official said yesterday.    

There are separate counting rooms at one centre. Under normal circumstances, a counting room is dedicated for around 12,000 voters. For counting and related work, a staff of 40 is deployed.   


However, an official of the Election Commission said one counting-room would be reserved for counting ballots of 6,000 voters this time due to health guidelines to be followed in respect of COVID-19.   


Also, he said the staff would also be reduced at each counting room. A political party or an independent group can deploy two counting agents each this time.   


Counting will commence only the following day after voting this time.
