Functions of the Election Commission are as follows:
Preparation of Electoral Rolls - The election commission has to prepare the electroal roll of all the persons who are adults and are eligible for voting in the elections. The electroal roll is extremely important as it is used for the identification of voters.
Delimitation of Constituencies - In order to maintain the essentially representative character of parliamentary democracy, constituencies of citizens have to be delimited every now an then. The Election Commission performs this important function in order to ensure that the candidates serve the electorate instead of mere vote banks.
