NAGAPATTINAM: Door-to-door distribution of booth slips commenced at Neela North Street under the supervision of District Election Officer and Collector C.Munianathan, here on Monday.
The slips are to be distributed by booth-level officers as per the directives of the Election Commission of India. Mr. Munianathan said the slips were given to the voter or members of their family on securing signature of the receiver. The second phase of distribution would be started on Wednesday.
Voters may secure information on schedule of distribution of booth slips in the six constituencies on the following numbers: 04364-270527 for Sirkazhi (reserved); 04364-222456 for Mayiladuthurai; 04364-289439 for Poompuhar; 04365-240245 for Nagapattinam; 04366-275493 for Keezhvelur (reserved); and 04369-251921 for Vedaranyam.
Booth slip distribution is scheduled to commence for the five Assembly constituencies here from Tuesday and it will continue for four days. The electoral photo identity cards (EPIC) have been distributed to all voters.
In the event of loss of EPICs, voters may use their photo-identified-voter slips to cast their votes. Non-resident Indians may exercise their franchise with the use of their passports as identity proof.
Distribution of voter slips with the seal of returning officer and signature of the polling officer must be followed up with acknowledgement from voters, Collector T.K.Ponnuswamy said here on Monday.
Addressing poll officials and village administrative officers at Jayamkondam, he said in the absence of particular voters, the acknowledgement could be obtained from their family members whose names find a place in the voter list.
The distribution of voter slips could be carried out for a second time for making the process complete, he said, advising returning officers and poll officials to hold classes for those deployed for distribution of voter slips.
Names of voters who had shifted elsewhere must be kept in a separate envelope along with adequate details and distributed on April 12. Telephone numbers of taluk office and officials should be published in newspapers to enable those who had not received their voter slips to obtain the same. A compliance report on the distribution of slips on Tuesday and Wednesday must be submitted by the officials.
