Registration of students in voters’ list

Hassan Deputy Commissioner R. Girish has directed principals of pre-university and degree colleges to ensure their students get enrolled as voters. The heads of the institutions should take measures to register all those who attained the age of 18 years as voters and give the list to concerned booth-level officers, he said in a meeting to review the voters’ list verification.

The Election Commission has asked the district administration to ensure 61,000 fresh voters get their names registered in the list. So far 25,481 fresh voters have been registered.

“The college principals should cooperate with the officers to get the registration done. The SVEEP committees should also conduct voters’ awareness programmes in colleges,” he said.

Of a total 16 lakh voters in the district, verification of over 13 lakh voters had been completed. The verification of the remaining voters would be completed by November 18, he added.
