Unlike the last Parliamentary elections, running from pillar to post to find their names and polling booth locations is over for voters in Gurgaon.

The Gurgaon administration has set up 18 voter registration and information centres across the city for the coming Assembly elections in Haryana scheduled for October 13.

These centres will remain open from 9 a.m. to 8 pm every day.

In the recent Lok Sabha elections, polling stations of some localities and voters were changed due to delimitation and the voters faced a lot of problem locating polling stations.

Gurgaon Magistrate Anutrag Aggarwal said a lot of confusion prevailed, especially in posh localities like DLF, Sushant Lok and other HUDA sectors, during the last Parliamentary elections.

In Gurgaon Assembly, centres have been set up at the office of Joint Commissioner of MCG (opposite civil hospital), Community centres of Sector 14, Sector 7 extension, Sector 4, Cooperative Bank Civil Lines, SD Public School Rajendra Park, Market Committee office Gurgaon, DLF community centre and community centre Sushant Lok (near Paras Hospital).

The centre for village Basai, Sector 9, 10 and Devilal Nagar has been set up at Govt College Sector 9.

Voters can also locate the nearest centres by logging into the Gurgaon district administration’s website at www.gurgaon.gov.in.
