Elephants are used each year to deliver election materials to a polling station in Lou Romiet village, Krang Teh commune, Pechrieda district, in Mondulkiri province which will happen this year on July 29.

Mondulkiri Provincial Election Commission chief Kin Chean said the polling station is located in a difficult geographical area which makes it necessary to use the animals as a means of delivery across Blay stream.

‘It is the only way to access the location which has 133 voters. This is a sense of being a service provider to the National Election Committee,’ he said.
