EC to use symbol for NOTA in Bihar election

New Delhi, Sept. 19 : The Election Commission (EC) on Saturday announced that a symbol will be used for the first time next to the ‘None of the above’ (NOTA) option in the upcoming Bihar assembly polls.

The EC said that the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, has designed the symbol.

This is for the first time that a symbol will appear in front of the NOTA button after the Supreme Court’s order in September 2013.

The EC added the NOTA button on the EVMs as the last option on the voting panel.

Nearly 60 lakh people in last year’s Lok Sabha polls exercised NOTA. (ANI)
