Saturday is the last day for submission of forms for enrolment of voters or making changes in voter i-cards for the Lok Sabha election, the UT Election Department has stated.

Earlier, there were reports that the registration of new voters will be allowed until March 22.
On Friday, officials said that since supplementary electoral rolls have to be ready by March 22, which is the last date for filing nominations for the Lok Sabha election scheduled for April 10, application forms for enrolment or making changes in the voter list will be accepted only until March 15.

Forms submitted after March 15 would be processed after the completion of the election process, officials said.

At present, forms are being accepted by 12 AEROs in different parts of the city.

Joint Chief Electoral Officer Tilak Raj stated that there was some confusion over the last date for submission of forms. “Whether residents want to get their names included in the voters list or get any particulars changed, tomorrow is the last date. The supplementary voters’ list will be ready by March 22,” he said.

Since the electoral rolls were released on January 5 after summary revision, as many as 20,000 forms have been submitted. This would make the  number of registered voters in Chandigarh cross the 6-lakh mark. At present, the number of registered voters is 5.80 lakh.
