    The Election Commission has finalised 37,711 polling stations across the country for the 10th parliamentary elections slated for January 5.

    The Election Commission (EC) on Tuesday sent lists of the polling centres of the country’s 300 constituencies to the BG Press for printing the names of the centres.

    “We’ve sent the lists of polling stations to the BG Press for printing the names of the centres in each constituency,” a joint secretary of the EC secretariat told seeking anonymity.

    Some 9.2 crore voters will be able to exercise their franchise through 1,89,053 booths of the polling stations in the election, the Election Commission sources said.

    In the 2008 general election, some 35,263 polling centres were set up for nearly 8.1 crore voters.

    This year 2,448 fresh polling centres are being set up with the rise of more than one crore new voters across the country.
