Ballot boxes will be opened in the presence of representatives of the two candidates -- Ram Nath Kovind and Meira Kumar -- and the observers of the Election Commission.
To become a President, a candidate needs more than 50% of votes, which means 49,452 votes.

In the last Presidential polls in 2012, Pranab Mukherjee had defeated PA Sangma with over 69% votes.
