What is Booth Management in Election?

Booth Management

Booth is the polling centre where people cast their vote in an election. For every political party, managing booths is a huge task. This requires careful management of people, complex technology, ballot boxes, resources and the communication of information to the public.

The objective of booth management in India is to help candidates maintain an authentic and attention-grabbing communication with the voters at every polling centre to help define the ideology of the party and the candidate so that they are triumphant on Election Day. In order to enhance participation by the recognized political parties and candidates at grass root level during preparation and revision of elections, booth-level management helps constant engagement with the voters reckoned to be the best hope for Parties in the absence of strong local leadership. Booth Level Teams are appointed for electoral preparations at specific polling station areas to understand various aspects of the demographics at the booth and patterns of voters’ behaviour more efficiently. Hence, the potential votes increases.

A comprehensive preparation at the booth level for any election is very important to leave an indelible impression. At the booth level, we work on the following aspects in some of the following ways.


Voter Survey

Voters at all booth levels are necessary to win the election. Political research team takes intense surveys at various polling areas to decide the current situation in the constituency. Voter surveys determine the party’s position and allow strategies at the booth level that can benefit them. Voter surveys reflect public statistics, age, caste, voting pattern and various issues. Door-to-door survey, setting up booths at organisations and prime locations, rallies and public events can help collect more information about the potential voters, approach new audiences and also bridge the gaps of voting participation. Research on previous election results can also help identify the issues and weaknesses for and against the party.

Data Collection

Data is collected through surveys that includes information of a targeted group of people about their opinions, behaviour, or issues. Common types of survey examples are written questionnaires, phone or face-to-face interviews, on-field groups, and e-mails, WhatsApp or website surveys. These data are commonly used with key stakeholders to discover needs, position and assess satisfaction for the party. Data also includes polling booth information that assesses the party’s strength and weaknesses on the ground. We make a list of competitors and previous election members who lost elections and the reason behind it. Our team determines the booths along with you and suggests tasks during elections, what you need to do in your area and how to strengthen your position.


Booth Management Strategy

Each constituency consists of several booths. In any constituency in India, there are almost more than 250 booths and each booth has more than 600 and 1000 voters. There can be more than one thousand voters at any booth. Electoral preparation at Booth level can mean understanding various aspects of data and patterns of voters’ behaviour more efficiently. Effective strategy makes it easy for political parties to understand the basic features of voting. For strategizing at booth level:

  • We set up a youth committee at every booth.
  • Meet Party office bearers and decide travel itinerary with mandal level officials
  • Communicating with booth level officers and being active on regular basis
  • Make a list of local influencers and local seers for promotion
  • Decide division of joint work with the organisers and outsiders of the region
