Bengaluru: Final voters’ list to be out on January 31 | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: BBMP’s revision of the electoral roll is under way and the final voters’ list will be published on January 31, 2022. The process began on August 3 this year.
A draft voters’ list will be published on November 8. Voters can check their names on the voter helpline mobile application or official websites.
Gaurav Gupta, chief commissioner, BBMP, and Dayanand P, special commissioner, administration, conducted a press meet on Saturday to discuss the same. If there are mistakes or changes pertaining to name, gender, father’s name or address have to be made in the existing voters’ list, one needs to submit Form 8.
“Those who have shifted their residence within the constituency need to submit Form 8 (A). For those who’ve moved to other constituencies, Form 7 has to be filled…Form 6 must be submitted to enrol as a new voter,” said Dayanand.
He added: “If someone in the family has died and the name has to be removed, Form 7 should be submitted.”
First-time voters born between January 2, 2002 and January 1, 2003 have to furnish agerelated verification documents like Aadhaar card, birth certificate, PAN card and driving licence to get their names included in the voters’ list.
The civic body has organised special registration drives between 10am and 5pm on every Sunday (for a month) from November 7 at voter registration officers, ward help centres and polling booths.
Dispelling the notion that those with EPIC cards can cast their vote, Dayanand said: “They can’t vote until their names are added to the electoral roll.” BBMP is in touch will all registered political parties and the draft electoral roll will be sent to them without any discrepancies, said Gupta.
