 Ballotting will take place on November 9 in Himachal Pradesh, chief election commissioner Achal Kumar Joti announced on Thursday.

 
The votes polled in the 68 assembly seats will be counted on December 18, Jyoti said at a press conference.
 
It was earlier expected that the Gujarat election schedule would also be announced along with the Himachal polls. But that did not happen.
 
In Himachal Pradesh, the model code of conduct has come into immediate effect.
 
There are a total of 7521 polling stations, of which 136 are all women polling stations.
 
Jyoti said that instructions have been given to facilitate differently abled voters.  He said that VVPAT machines will be put to use.
