The Election Commission is likely to announce the schedule for Assembly Elections to Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh at 4 pm today.

Earlier on Wednesday, PTI reported that Gujarat might go to polls in December as the term of the current legislative assembly is coming to end in the third week of January.

The report mentioned Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) A K Joti saying that voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) system will be used in over 50,000 booths in Gujarat.

Also, for the first time, the poll panel will introduce all-women polling stations in Gujarat in all assembly segments.
