New Delhi: To make Delhi election hassle-free and to attract more voters, the Election Commission had come up with ‘model polling stations’ in the national capital which provided facilities like the waiting lounge, creche, drinking water, pick-and-drop facilities for elderly people.

The entrance of these model polling booths were decked up with floral hanging, balloons to make voters feel welcome and important. Every constituency had one model polling booth and for voters who couldn’t wait to flaunt their inked fingers, they could have photoshoot right outside their polling station as selfie boards put up for them.
