Casting of vote in one school was on the ballot paper, while another private school made students vote on computer. But, in all, it turned out to be new experience for primary school students to be part of the electioneering process.

The Vidya International School,Yeola  held elections to select students for the Special Boy, Special Girl, Culture Secretary, Sports Captain and other posts in the schools. While the voting was for students from classes four to 10.

Being the first exposure to voting system, students of class four were given instructions of the whole process starting from placing of “ink” on the left forefinger to the way of casting their votes. Contestants, who were from classes eight, nine and 10, were given the option to choose the symbols they want on the ballot paper. The School’s library turned into a polling booth where 16 voting tables each were placed on either side to enable faster voting. It started at 8.30 a.m. and ended at 12.30, when the results were announced.
