On April 17, 2019, Indonesia launched the world's largest single-day election campaign – the Indonesian presidential election and the national parliamentary election. The Indonesian election has more than 190 million voters, and the voting time is only 8 hours. The logistics task of the election is very arduous and needs to travel through the jungle, not only to send elephants to transport the ballot boxes, but also to ensure the safety of voters in turbulent areas.
Delivery Ballot boxes by elephant, horse, and some regional votes "late"
Indonesia is known as the “land of thousands of islands” and spans three time zones from west to east. In order to ensure the smooth conduct of the vote, the Indonesian Election Commission has arranged 350,000 military and police personnel throughout the country to maintain order, and about 6 million staff members have been arranged in nearly 810,000 polling stations.
The distribution of polling stations is scattered. The staff needs to go into the mountains and small islands by plane, by boat, by car, on foot, even by elephants, horseback riding, etc., to ensure that voting materials such as ballots and ballot boxes arrive at the polling stations on time.
