More than 2,000 personnel would be deployed for counting of votes for the Lok Sabha, the lower house of India's bicameral parliament seat, in Mizoram, a senior official said on Monday.

Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Madhup Vyas said a three-tier security arrangement has been made in all the 13 counting centres across the state.

There would be three counting centres in state capital Aizawl and one each in the other district headquarters, he said.

Altogether, there would be 40 counting halls with 379 counting tables. Each table would be supervised and monitored by a counting supervisor, counting agent and micro observer, he said.

The counting of votes would begin at 8am, local time, on Tuesday, and postal ballots would be counted first, followed by votes cast in the EVMs, Vyas said.

There were five assembly segments where five rounds of counting would be held, four rounds of counting would be held in 15 assembly segments, three rounds in 18 assembly segments, and two rounds of counting would take place in two assembly segments, he said.

Media centres have been set up at all the counting venues to ensure seamless distribution of information regarding election results to the public, the CEO said.

Mizoram has only one Lok Sabha seat and 56.6% of over 8.56 lakh voters exercised their franchise in the Lok Sabha polls held on April 19.
