Several islets in Gujarat’s 1,600 km coastline are inhabited.

The Election Commission in 2022 Assembly polls facilitated voting in many islets obviating the need for electors to travel to the mainland.

At Aliabet, under the Vagra Assembly segment in Bharuch district, a polling station was set up in a shipping container. The EC move spared 217 electors from travelling for more than 80 km to exercise their franchise.
