In India, elections on very, very large scale

Never before had a poll of this magnitude been organized before: in India, legislative elections last seven weeks and concern 900 million people. Excuse the little.

The Indians began electing their MPs on Thursday, April 11, and will vote in stages until May 19. In a country with a population of 1.3 billion inhabitants according to the latest census, the number of voters is colossal: 900 million people are called to the polls across the country. What give the Belgian designer Kroll, who has engaged in a complicated arithmetic exercise to make the following conclusion: if there was only one polling station in India, the line of waiting in front of it would do 22.5 times around the planet.

That Kroll is reassured: Indian voters will have 1 million polling stations to slip their ballot in the ballot box, and more than 11 million election officials and observers will be mobilized.
