Must read

District Election Officer Ronald Rose said that citizens can enrol for voter ID registration (Form-6) and residence shifting or correction (Form 8 A) till 10 days before the last day of nomination, that is, till April 14.
Even after the last date, people can apply but they will not be added to the 2024 Lok Sabha election voters’ list and in the voters’ list of the Secunderabad Cantonment Assembly constituency.
Elections are being held for the Hyderabad and Secunderabad Parliament constituencies and the Secunderabad Cantonment Assembly constituency. There are 3,986 polling stations and 1,675 polling locations in the three police commissionerates.
There are 45,70,138 voters in Hyderabad district as per the election final roll on February 8. Of them, 23,30,574 are male voters and 22,39,240 are female voters. 324 third-gender voters are also listed in the electoral rolls.
If any officer delays in handing over seized money to the people, even if they have proper documents, the public can complain to the District Grievance Committee (DGC). The DGC is a three-member committee headed by the Vigilance Additional Commissioner.
46,574 voters have registered (Form-6) from January 23, 2024, to March 15, 2024. 917 NRI voters (form 6A) have applied and 1,21,299 voters applied for deletion (form 7). 81,624 voters applied for shifting of residence (form-8) in the last two months.
“Duplicate votes have been removed. We have trained election staff for the Lok Sabha elections and we are prepared and ready for the elections,” Ronald Rose said.
Voters aged above 85 years and persons with disabilities (PWD) have the option of home voting. Three months back during Assembly elections, voters aged above 80 years were allowed home voting but it has been hiked to 85 years for parliament elections. Citizens over 85 number 36,664 in the city.
“Around 46,000 staffers will be deployed for the elections. Among them around 20,000 are police personnel,” Ronald Rose said.
He requested citizens to recheck their voter ID cards. There are possibilities of the serial and part numbers getting changed. “People should call 1950 for election-related complaints or use the C–Vigil application,” he said.
Hyderabad Police Commissioner Srinivas Reddy said that 18 integrated checkposts have been put up across the city.
For getting election-related permission or clearance, political parties and candidates should contact the Suvidha Centre at the GHMC head office.
