44,000 individuals in Chittoor district have made use of the month-long voter enrolment cum correction process currently on in the State, which is expected to go up by a few more thousands by the last date i.e., on October 31.
A similar process taken up last year brought in 69000 additional voters.
At a meeting to review the progress made thus far in the district, Chief Electoral Officer Bhanwar Lal saw the need for not only booth-level officials, but also political parties to chip in and create awareness among the public, to ensure a higher enrolment.
“Booth level officials will stay at the polling centres on October 28 and the voters can visit their respective centres to check for their names in the list and also get suitable clarification from the officials,” he noted.
Those finding their names missing can register on the spot.
He also cautioned the public to pay only Rs.10 in the ‘Mee Seva’ counters for getting a new voter identity card and Rs.25 for new voter enrolment and card.
District Revenue Officer Ongole Seshaiah, Madanapalle Sub-Collector Hari Kiran, RDOs Ramachandra Reddy (Tirupati) and Penchala Kishore (Chittoor) took part.
