As per the guidelines issued by the Election Commission of India, carrying a mobile phone or clicking photos inside a polling booth is strictly prohibited.
"Clicking pictures of Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) or a selfie with it amounts to the breach of voting privacy and cases against these people have been registered for the same offence," Saujanya, the Chief Election Officer of Uttarakhand state informed ANI.
Voting for all five parliamentary constituencies in the state took place on Thursday. Counting of votes will be held on May 23.
