BBMP to publish Draft voters’ list on November 8
The annual special summary revision of the electoral rolls is under way and the draft voters’ list will be published on November 8. Citizens will have time till December 8 to submit applications for either address change within the same Assembly constituency, change of address outside the constituency, addition/deletion, etc.
Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike’s (BBMP) chief commissioner Gaurav Gupta, who is also the District Election Officer said that, this time citizens need not even go to the offices of the assistant revenue officer, booth-level officer or election officer concerned. Applications may be submitted online with the requisite documents, either through the Voter Helpline app that is available on the Google Play Store, or by visiting http://www.nvsp.in or http://www.voterportal.eci.gov.in
To enable citizens to submit applications for addition/deletions or any other changes, a special drive will be held on all Sundays of this month, Gupta said.
BBMP’s Special Commissioner (Administration) K Dayanand, who is the Additional District Election officer, said that for new enrolments for those aged above 18, the cut-off date is January 1, 2003. “Anyone born before January 1, 2003, and has turned 18 years may apply.” Election officials have requested political parties to appoint booth-level agents who can coordinate with the BLOs. “Usually, during elections, there are allegations that names have been deleted from the voters’ list. The booth-level agents, in coordination with the BLOs, can get names of eligible voters included in the list,” he added.
