To woo women voters, Mizoram sets up pink polling booths in each constituency


These booths are locally known as Dingdi in Mizoram. Named after a wild flower commonly available in the state, Dingdi is used by poets to depict beautiful women

It was during assembly elections last year when pink polling booths came into existence. To woo the women voters, states like Goa and Punjab had come up with polling booths that were decorated in pink colour and were entirely staffed by women. This year as well, states are going ahead with the trend and Mizoram is on the list.

The state will have 40 pink polling booths — a pink polling station for each constituency. These booths are locally known as Dingdi in Mizoram. Named after a wild flower commonly available in the state, Dingdi is used by poets to depict beautiful women.

To encourage women voters, the pink polling stations are managed by women officials. These booths have one presiding officer, three polling officials, and security personnel.

In this state, women electors outnumber men. The state saw a spike in the number of female electors in 2013 and 2014. This year too, women electors outnumber males. The ratio is 1,051 female per 1,000 male voters in 2018. In 2013 and 2014, the ratio was 1,029 and 1,036, respectively, per 1,000 males. Hence, women play a crucial role in this election.

However, their representation in state politics remain low. The number of women candidates in this election is mere 15 among 209 overall candidates in the fray.

The BJP, which has never won a seat in the state, has fielded the highest number of six women candidates.

Its state president JV Hluna said Mizo women were not traditionally interested in politics, but now they were participating in social activities and it has submitted a memoranda to all political parties to field women candidates.

BJP is followed by the Zoram Thar, an Evangelist political party, which has fielded five women aspirants.

MNF president Zoramthanga told PTI, “We fielded women candidates in 1987 and we had even a woman minister. But later in our women wing, we don’t have suitable candidate.”

According to the final roll published on September 27 this year for the Assembly polls, Mizoram has a total voter of 7,68,181 persons, of which 3,74,496 are males and 3,93,685 females.

During the Karnataka elections which took place earlier this year, pink polling booths were a hit among the women. Will these booths draw women voters for elections in Mizoram as well? Only time will tell.
