Online voter registration by next month

Special Correspondent

Separate schedule for tsunami-hit areas


CHENNAI: : For the first time in Tamil Nadu, people can register their names in voter rolls through the Internet. The arrangement will start next month in 195 Assembly constituencies, where a summary revision (house number verification) is under way. Among these are 28 constituencies hit by the tsunami and a separate schedule is followed there. In the 38 constituencies, where an intensive revision (house-to-house enumeration) is on, the exercise will begin on June 26.

Hosur has been included in the intensive revision process, for which a new schedule has been worked out.

Chief Electoral Officer Naresh Gupta told presspersons here on Wednesday that online registration would begin after the draft rolls were published. "Those whose names have been left out of the draft rolls can use this facility, accessing the website of the Election Commission or the State Election Department (www.elections.tn.nic.in) .

On registration, the district election officers will take printouts for claims for inclusion.

The printouts will be sent to postal authorities for verification and obtaining the signatures of the claimants." Online registration was tried out in Maharashtra last year. This registration was likely to be allowed for a month.

"The period has not yet been determined."

Data entry

Wherever enumeration had been completed, data entry was taken up. In areas covered by intensive revision, residents' welfare associations were being roped in to ensure that no area or house was left out.

Mr. Gupta said the commission extended the period of house-to-house enumeration by 10 days. Originally, it was to be completed on April 15.

It was being carried out in the constituencies covering six municipal corporations and four constituencies in Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur districts.
