All of them are to affix their signatures or seals on the ballot boxes. Then the Election Commission officer will compare the number of ballot papers issued based on his or her records with those not used in front of the polling agents. The numbers must match.

When all the ballot papers are accounted for, the presiding officer will reopen the boxes and proceed to count the ballots in front of the agents.

Each ballot paper will be shown to the agents as it is counted. Ballot papers which do not conform to the rules, such as spoilt votes, will be marked ‘rejected’ while the accepted ones will be added to the respective candidates tally.

After the votes are counted at the various polling stations, a statement of the results of the poll will then be sent to the returning officer at the central counting centre located in each constituency.

The returning officer, on receiving the results from the polling stations, will add all these votes, inclusive of postal votes, to determine the winner.
