A village is usually divided into a few ‘wards’ in such a way that all the  wards have almost an equal number of voters. Each ward elects one member to the village panchayat, called ‘Ward Member’. This ensures that people from all localities of the. village are represented. A person who attains 21 years of age or above can contest the election.
