  • How Kerala made its Elections Accessible kerala.png

     

    Prior to the Kerala Legislative Assembly Elections, the State doubled its efforts in reaching out to the PwDs in the following ways - 

    • Every district conducted a massive drive to ensure maximum enrolment of PwDs.
    • Permanent Ramps were built in public buildings serving as polling stations. 
    • Directions have been given to District Election Officers (DEOs) to set up temporary ramps wherever construction of permanent ramps is not possible.
    • In order to make space for the entry of wheelchairs of the disabled inside the polling station, wide entrances were ensured.  
    • The disabled are given priority-entry and are not required to wait at the polling queue.  Other facilities like tricycles, wheel chairs, and stretchers are provided in all polling stations.  Additional guidelines through A/V medium are also made widely available.
