A total of 32,429 government officials, who will be on election duty Dec 4, have cast their votes through postal ballots till Thursday evening, an election commission official said.

Of the government officials, more than 25,220 civil defence personnel and 6,070 policemen had cast their votes since Nov 24 when the postal ballot process began.

"This year, we have a record voting by government officials through postal ballot in comparison to 1,600 people in the 2008 assembly elections. The postal ballot process will continue till Dec 1," said Ankur Garg, chief nodal officer at the Delhi election office.

"We have maintained a database of those who are on election duty and they were provided Form 12 to express their interest in voting for the elections," he added.

The entire process has been videographed and all political parties have been kept in the loop, said the officer.

Concerted efforts have been taken this time to ensure maximum participation of those on election duty, he said.
