Vijayawada, Mar 06: The Taxpayers Association on Monday demanded the Election Commission undertake door-to-door enrolment and register new voters and also re-register the voters whose name were deleted from electoral rolls. The Association submitted a memorandum in this regard to Chief Electoral Officer Gopala Krishna Dwivedi through email.
Association secretary M.V. Anjaneyulu said that the errors in the voters list were pointed out in the email, besides including the opinion of the people over deletion of their names from the lists.
Mr Anjaneyulu said that the Association had earlier made a representation to Mr Dwivedi’s predecessor R.P. Sisodia asking him to follow a systematic procedure in enrolling of voters. However, there confusion remained in the minds of the voters over deletion of their votes through Form 7.
He said that there are some rumours floating on social media that votes were being deleted by the election staff who are against the ruling party, and to clear these doubts they requested the CEO to conduct door-to-door campaign to check and register the voters
