Distribution of Voter Information Slips Begins for Fourth Phase of Elections

Sanjay Kumar Pandey: Chief Electoral Officer K Ravi Kumar of Jharkhand has announced that the distribution of voter information slips has commenced for the fourth phase of elections in the Lok Sabha constituencies of Lohardaga, Khunti, Palamu, and Singhbhum. Booth Level Officers (BLOs) are going door-to-door to carry out this task. Representatives of political parties are also welcome to accompany the BLOs to observe the distribution of voter slips. The Chief Electoral Officer was speaking at a press conference held on Saturday at the Election House in Dhurwa, Ranchi.

Continuous Monitoring of Fake News

Election Commission Remains Vigilant for Transparent Voting: K Ravi Kumar

He explained that the voter information slip would contain details such as the voter’s name, booth number and location, instructions for voting, and the location of the booth on Google Maps. The Election Commission will also survey during the distribution of voter information slips to determine how many people do not have voter identification cards. Voters must carry their voter ID cards along with the slip to cast their votes. In cases where voters do not have a voter identification card, the Election Commission has identified 12 other types of identity documents that will be accepted for voting.

The distribution of voter information slips will be closely monitored to ensure that this facility reaches all voters. For this purpose, officials from the Chief Electoral Officer’s office will visit the respective Lok Sabha constituencies and ensure that the distribution of voter slips is carried out smoothly.

The Chief Electoral Officer mentioned that for transparent voting, a list of Absent, Shifted, and Deceased (ASD) voters has also been prepared to avoid the possibility of bogus voting. BLOs will also be present at the polling centers during voting to ensure the correct identification of voters due to their local presence.

Moreover, volunteers between the ages of 14 and 18 will be stationed at all booths. These volunteers will guide voters and be trained as future skilled voters. Selection of such volunteers has been made, and they have already received training.

The Chief Electoral Officer emphasized that continuous monitoring is being done for the publication and dissemination of misleading news, including posts on social media. Action will be taken against the relevant institutions or individuals upon the detection of misleading news.
