If you already have a voter identification card and that therefore your name will automatically figure in the revised electoral rolls, it is time to think. If you have voted in previous elections, have a voter ID card, and have not shifted your residence, still, your name may have been deleted from the electoral rolls. Check whether your name still exists on voter rolls!!!! Please verify and restore your name if deleted. BBMP officials insist that it is the responsibility of the citizens to check if their names are in the voter lists and re-register if not found.
There have been serious issues in the electoral rolls in the past, and this time is no exception. Adding to the chaos and confusion, some electoral rolls miss several serial numbers. Close to 1.83L names deleted from voter rolls in Bengaluru city in BBMP limits. Most of the names are from Rajarajeshwarinagar, Basangudi, Vijayanagar and BTM layout Constituency and show an increase in the deletion process with 16145, 16301, 12808 and 11696 applications respectively. The total number of voters has decreased from what it was during the Assembly polls.
If the counts are reduced, it is an indication that voters have been excluded from the electoral roll indiscreetly, resulting in the denial of voting rights to valid voters.
A draft of electoral rolls for the upcoming elections has been put at the official website www.ceokarnataka.gov.in Those who wish to add, delete or make changes in the list in Bengaluru can do at the BBMP office or through online.
