Nov. 10, Kupwara: To assess the status of the Special Summary Revision (SSR) for 2023, a meeting of Electoral Registration Officers (EROs), Assistant Electoral Registration Officers (AEROs), and other relevant officers was presided over by the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Kupwara, the District Election Officer, Ayushi Sudan.
The Kupwara district has 611 polling places overall, and according to the draft electoral register, there are 5,19,000 voters, according to ACR Kupwara’s comprehensive summary of the process that was presented at the commencement.
The SVEEP campaign, the seamless and effective administration of the ongoing Special Summary Revision (SSR) of the Electoral Rolls-2023, the provision of Assured Minimum Facilities (AMFs) at polling places, the agenda items in detail, and the registration of voters with disabilities (PWDs) were all examined by the DC.
The primary goal of the Special Summary Revision (SSR)-2023, according to her, is to maintain the Electoral Roll current and to provide a chance for new voters to be enrolled who are eligible and will turn 18 on January 1, 2024 (the qualifying date).
In order to pinpoint the places in which some voters have continued to be unregistered, she also emphasized the need for analyzing electoral rolls.
The DC gave the appropriate officials instructions to organize special enrollment campaigns in all degree colleges, polytechnics, ITIs, schools, madrassas, and other educational facilities, as well as in marketplaces and industrial estates, with the goal of enrolling all eligible young voters and resolving any issues they may have with the electoral register.
After returning from Dhocks, she oversaw the special camps for the ST population. She requested that camps specifically for the elderly and those with disabilities be held.
Additionally, EROs and AEROs were instructed by the DC to organize BLOs for aggressive door-to-door voter registration operations. She also stressed that daily progress reports from AEROs and EROs be made.
