CEOs have published new versions of electoral rolls at their websites today, 05 Jan 2015.
In view of assembly elections in Delhi and BBMP elections at Bangalore, rolls of these two cities are important. Please check if your names are in the rolls. Having sighted in the last version or having voted in the last elections do not guarantee that your name would be in the rolls now. Even if you find entry in the rolls, the data could have been corrupted.
Despite ECI guidelines about the format of the rolls, various CEOs differ in the format. Delhi CEO has chosen a new format this time – publishing only supplements to the version published on 15 Oct 2014. Thus, to check the roll of a part, we have to open two documents. CEO Karnataka has published single document per part, with main and supplementary part. I wish all the CEOs took one standard approach and stuck to it rather than surprising and confusing the users.
Over the next few days I’ll analyse the current version of the rolls and report the main findings here.
