Electoral gain for gloves: Erode voters to get gloves for polling

Erode: The Erode district administration is set to make news; the district authorities have placed an order to buy 19 lakh gloves for free distribution to voters. As a precautionary measure against Covid-19, voters have to wear it at the time of entering the polling stations.

District Collector and election officer C Kathiravan said this on Wednesday, and added that due to risks of Covid-19 spreading among people, the voters queueing up at the polling booths will be provided with gloves.

Each voter entering the booths would be examined with thermal-scanners and their hands sprayed with sanitizers; then the voter would be given a pair of the gloves to be worn while exercising their franchise, the Collector said.

After casting their vote, the voters should throw the used gloves in a box kept at the polling booth.
