He pointed out that the difficulty of postal voting by the army personnel has been removed and now an electronic voting system called EDPBS is being followed. The Chief Electoral Officer mentioned that changes are being made to the extent that those working in the railway sector and the media can use the postal voting system and said that this is because of the election Commission's aim that no voter should be left out.
