The Election Commission has stated that video recording will be set up to monitor polling stations where CCTV connection is not possible.

The Election Commission had issued a circular to all the 753 local levels through the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration to make arrangements for the installation of CCTV cameras at the polling stations.

However, due to the inability of the local levels to manage, only less than half of the local level CCTV monitoring will be possible.

"There will be CCTV cameras only in about 300 polling stations," said Chief Election Commissioner Dinesh Kumar Thapaliya. 

There are 10,756 polling stations and 21,955 polling booths across the country. Ballot boxes are collected from all polling stations and deposited in the office of the Returning Officers.

Counting of votes will be done at 753 local levels. The Election Commission has stated that it is not possible to install CCTV cameras in the polling stations of remote places due to lack of electricity and internet facilities.
