The election commission had clarified that ballot papers mistakenly put in the wrong ballot boxes will also be counted. This clarification comes after several incidents of confusion over two ballot boxes among voters were reported. These ballot boxes were present to separately vote for members of the Block Development Committees (BDC) and Zilla Parishad; and the Panchayat.

The counting of votes for Panchayat heads will be completed first, after which the votes for BDC and Zilla Parishad members will be calculated.

According to ANI, in the Panchayat elections, six districts will have the highest number of village heads, who will be elected in the state. As many as 1,160 village heads will be elected in Almora while the number translates to 1,035, 1,174, 686, 376 and 401 in Tehri, Pauri, Pithoragarh, Udham Singh Nagar, and Dehradun districts respectively.

Zee News reported that CCTV cameras would be used for surveillance during the counting of votes.

Last month, the Uttarakhand State Election Commission announced the dates for the polls. With the announcement of Panchayat elections, the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) came into effect in the state.
