Uttar Pradesh General Election Schedule 2014
The Election Schedule in UP is spread over a period of six days. This is obviously due to the volatile law and order situation in the state. Often violence breaks out in polling booths in Uttar Pradesh. The paramilitary forces are very busy when on election duty in UP. To make their task easy and to conduct free and fair elections in Uttar Pradesh the Election Commission has come up with this solution. So now, more paramilitary forces are deployed per polling area. Having divided the polls in UP in 6 phases will help the EC to monitor elections in UP better.
As per the election schedule released, the first phase of elections will be on the 10th of April which is also the first day of voting across India. The dates thereafter are well spaced out.
