Manoj Kumar Meena, Karnataka's Chief Electoral Officer, stated that they intend to alter all of that, beginning with encouraging youngsters to apply before they turn 18.
Are you turning 18 and yearning to use your franchise? You do not have to wait for that special day to register; instead, you may apply far in advance. Every year, over 20 lakh voters become eligible to vote in Karnataka, however many do not because they do not register. The state has roughly 5.2 crore registered voters, which might increase by 20 lakh by the elections in May 2023.
Manoj Kumar Meena, Karnataka's Chief Electoral Officer, stated that they intend to alter all of that, beginning with encouraging teens to apply before the age of 18. Meena has been having meetings to advise his team to ensure that everyone is registered.
Meena informed TNIE that a procedure had been set up to make sure that everyone who was eligible registered and that nobody suffered as a result of their lack of enrollment. The enrollment forms have been changed and made more user-friendly
The process of connecting Aadhaar to voter identification cards will begin, and applicants can seek assistance from the agency. Meena stated that electoral records are dynamic and that names are added each year. "Those who desire to amend particulars must complete Form 6, such as the deletion of a name in the event of death, or simply Form 7. If their personal information, such as their address, changes, they must complete Form 8. Forms have been simplified, and individuals are urged to fill them out online.
With only eight months till the election, the three parties have begun their sprint to the finish line in order to secure the most seats. However, the Election Commission must ensure that the maximum number of people vote.
