An electoral roll is a list of all eligible people who have already applied for voter card in this election, the people who are entitled to cast their vote in an election. The electoral rolls are prepared Assembly Constituency wise its in may phase so the list and the election schedule is depends on that electoral roll. So that list is very important and its Assembly Constituency is subdivided into parts corresponding with the polling booths. The Election Commission of India has divided it in many way one of the important way is they has decided to generally have a maximum of 1200 electors per booth so that the transparency remains. The ECI have tried to maintain that the polling booths are so set up that no voter should ordinarily travel more than 2 kms. So that every citizen can reach in booth easily. Normally, one part will correspond with one polling booth.
