Manipur set to create history with all-women polling booths in entire assembly constituency
The second phase of the Lok Sabha elections in Manipur will enter the history books, with the state being the first in the country to introduce all-women polling booths in an entire assembly constituency. While such booths have been set up in other places too, Manipur takes the cake by having an entire assembly segment managed completely by women poll officers.
Manipur has a population of roughly 2.8 million, of which 19, 59,429 are eligible to vote. While 10,31,803 voters belonged to the Outer Manipur seat, which had already gone to polls in the first phase on April 11, 9,27,626 will vote to elect their representative for the Inner Manipur seat during the second phase on Thursday.
