Sun, Jun 8, 2014, 11:30 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Election Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya says that measures are underway to provide more facilities to the disabled persons for voting.

It has been brought to his attention that the disabled people face many difficulties when visiting polling centers for voting as many of the polling centers in Sri Lanka are at public places like schools, temples and community centers where there are no access for the disabled.

The Election Commissioner said that a survey would be conducted regarding the location of polling centers.

In the future, the Commissioner expects to select places which are more accessible to the disabled people as polling centers. He further said that the disabled persons who are on wheel chairs will be provided facilities to cast their vote before a polling officer in the polling station.
