Bihar Election 2020 Phase 1 Voting LATEST Updates: In Phase 1 of the Bihar Assembly Election 2020 on 28 October, Wednesday (28 November), polling will take place in 71 constituencies across the state.

Taking into consideration the safety of voters in view of the coronavirus pandemic, the timing of polling has been extended by one hour.

Voters will be able to exercise their franchise from 7 am to 6 pm. The last hour has been set aside for those who have contracted COVID-19 or who are in quarantine, reported Times of India.

Besides, in order to ensure that the social distancing at each polling station can be followed, the Election Commission (EC) has reduced the number of voters at each booth to 1,000. As a result of this, the number of polling stations has gone up to more than one lakh.

In the 2015 Bihar Assembly Elections, the number stood at over 65,000.

To hold Bihar Assembly Elections 2020 safely amid the pandemic, the EC has arranged more than seven lakh hand sanitiser units, about 46 lakh masks, 6 lakh PPE kits, 6.7 lakh units of faces-shields, 23 lakh pairs of hand gloves, reported The Times of India.
