HYDERABAD: The State election authorities have extended the timeline for voters’ enrolment by another 20 days to August 20.

Using this opportunity, people can obtain forms from the competent authority or download them from the website to apply for inclusion in the electoral rolls. Before applying, they can check whether the existing rolls contain their names. The verification can also be done through the helpline available on the toll-free phone 1100. Chief Electoral Officer I. V. Subba Rao said once the applicants’ names were included in the rolls, they would be issued voter photo-identity cards which were mandatory to exercise franchise during the coming elections.
