Situated 30 kilometres from Bhor taluka in Pune rural, the polling party drove to the foothills of Raireshwar to reach the polling station. From there, a further 18 km journey via Rairi leads to the base of Raireshwar, where polling teams trekked for an hour with the aid of an iron ladder to reach the polling station.

Election staff and officers were mobilised to trek to the fort, equipped with essential voting machinery including Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), control units and Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) devices.

Despite the difficult terrain, polling staff successfully transported all necessary materials to the polling station to ensure that every eligible voter could participate in the democratic process.

Poll workers in the district, as well as throughout the state, are facing various challenges in encouraging citizens to take part in this fundamental aspect of democracy for the success of Lok Sabha elections.

Negotiating the rugged path to Raireshwar, the team traversed using an iron ladder, exemplifying their commitment to upholding the democratic process even in the most challenging environments.

According to Maharashtra Tourism, Raireshwar is a hill fort of historical importance which is at a height of 4,505 feet above sea level.

The Raireshwar polling booth is located in the Baramati constituency and comprises six assembly seats (Indapur, Baramati, Purandar, Bhor, Khadakwasla and Daund).
