The Elections Commission says those who are physically disabled can apply for transport facilities in order to vote at the upcoming Local Government Election.
Issuing a statement, the Elections Commission said physically disabled persons can apply if they do not have access to the polls using a public service.
The statement also said the application should be handed over to the Area Returning Officer by the applicant himself or an individual who is not contesting at the upcoming election.
The applications should be submitted one week prior to the election, and the special transportation facility will be provided only if the Returning Officer is satisfied with the information.
The Elections Commission also announced that it is mandatory to present a certificate issued by a doctor along with the application.
