Indore: The publication of draft of special verification of photo electoral roll has revealed duplication of 1,07,043 voters in nine assembly constituencies of the district. The duplicate names have been deleted. After deletion, total voters in district stand at 24, 42,690.
In earlier verification, this number stood at 25,49,733. However, the final figure will emerge in September when the final publication of electoral roll ahead of assembly elections would be published. The detection and deletion of voters’ names from the voter list may spark a controversy among political parties but tracking of duplicate voters was made possible by employing ERO Net, a specially-designed software by Election Commission of India.
The EC had launched this software on October 4, 2017. The revision of electoral roll for deletion and inclusion of voters was held in the district on January 9 this year. As per figures of this revision, the total number of voters in the district was 25,49,733 including 13,22,705 males, 12,26,869 females and 159 third gender people.
The EC conducted a special verification of electoral rolls in the assembly election-bound states. Congress party had alleged that BJP added lakhs of fake voters in the voter list. Collector Nishant Warwade released the draft publication of the special verification of voter list at his office on Tuesday in the presence of representatives of recognised political parties.
Talking to mediapersons, Warwade said that usually people apply for adding their name in the voter list. But people don’t apply for deletion of name from the voter list in case their shift to other places. This, he said, creates duplication.
