While hitherto the average number of postal ballots in a constituency stood around 500, this time in some constituencies, it has gone up to as high as 4,000 votes because voters aged above 80 were allowed this facility and this time there were more election officials.

Moreover this time one will have to wait for almost 30 minutes to know the latest updates as the practice of providing live updates on the website of the Chief Electoral officer is not there this time and hence the results will only be available manually when the concerned official at the respective counting centre comes out with their half-hourly report.
