Greater Hyderabad voters made to run from pillar to post
The Election Commission publishes every year the draft rolls as well as final rolls. Never in the history has it brought out error free voters final rolls. Neither the ECI, CEO nor the Political Parties sat together on the voter list issue and found a proper solution to bring out erro free voter list.

All the political parties do talk of irregularities in the voter list and sometimes also demand high level probe, which mere eye wash.

As its duty the ECI do release advertisements – Vote our Right, Vote our Choice, Let us Vote etc. But, what the use of it, when the Commission is unable to bring out proper voter list?

It is due to dereliction of duty on the part of the officials as well as elected representatives for not taking seriously the issues of Voter ID Card, Voter’s slip, polling booth selection and allocation and error free voters’ list, due to which the voter who genuinely want to cast his/her vote is made to run from pillar to post.

This time the election commission has extended the timing of registration of new voters till last moment. And this has played spoil sport in bringing out a proper voter list. Due to jumbling in the voter list, the voter’s slip was not provided to the voter, husband had to cast his vote in one polling booth and wife had to go and vote in a polling booth which does not come under the rules laid by the commission to prepare the voter list. Likewise, many voters have faced difficulties.

Every voter expects that, when the Election Commission brings out the final list, it will take into consideration of geographical location of the voter’s details in a particular constituency and allocates polling booths in the same geographical location. So that, voters do not find any difficulty in reaching to the polling booths and cast their votes happily.
