A couple of days before the city goes to polls, LMC officials will also undertake a door-to-door campaign where broadcasts will be made using handsets and speakers. These efforts will run in tandem with the initiatives of the RWAs. For instance, Roop Kumar Sharma, of the Jan Kalyan Mahasamiti, expressed his commitment to conduct regular voter awareness rallies, along with circulation of pamphlets to sensitise voters.

Essential facilities

The LMC has pledged to provide a range of essential facilities to voters at polling stations. These include tent shades, water, fans, coolers, queue management assistance, and personnel to guide voters to rest areas if needed. Medical facilities will be available for any health emergencies, with trained Asha ANM personnel present to address any unforeseen situations. Furthermore, wheelchairs will be provided to elderly voters to ensure accessibility for all.
