Key Points :

Mayor wants to increase voter turncount for next election, how is he planning ? By improving the facility.

A : Out of scope.
B : Says by publicity they are increasing the turncount(It weakens the conclusion)
C : It says people behaviour wont change after the facility provided. The statement doesn't care whom people are voting
they care only how many people turn for voting(Incorrect).
D : Out of scope
E : This option says that people will turn up for voting if there is good facility provided. (Correct Answer)
