Aizawl: Home voting has begun in the state of Mizoram, allowing citizens aged 80 and above, as well as Persons with Disabilities (PwDs), to cast their votes from the comfort of their homes. This initiative has been put into action in three assembly constituencies located in the Serchhip district, specifically in the 26th Serchhip, 27th Tuikum, and 28th Hrangturzo constituencies.

6 polling teams carried out the process with the voting equipment. Each polling team comprises an Election Presiding Officer, a Polling Officer, security personnel, and the respective Booth Level Officers responsible for the designated areas.

The move to introduce home voting for elderly citizens and individuals with disabilities is aimed at ensuring that no eligible voter is left behind and that the democratic process remains accessible to all members of society.
