Polling Booth:

An electoral roll is a list of all eligible people who have already applied for voter card in this election, the people who are entitled to cast their vote in an election. The electoral rolls are prepared Assembly Constituency wise its in may phase so the list and the election schedule is depends on that electoral roll. So that list is very important and its Assembly Constituency is subdivided into parts corresponding with the polling booths. The Election Commission of India has divided it in many way one of the important way is they has decided to generally have a maximum of 1200 electors per booth so that the transparency remains. The ECI have tried to maintain that the polling booths are so set up that no voter should ordinarily travel more than 2 kms. So that every citizen can reach in booth easily. Normally, one part will correspond with one polling booth.



To exercise your franchise, First thing that they every citizen need that their name should be in the electoral roll. Without your name you are not allowed to make vote in relevant part for the area where you ordinarily reside in the Assembly Constituency. After registration this is your duty to find out whether your name has been registered or not

As an elector you need to find out your pooling booth area and the list where you can  check whether your name has been included in the electoral roll of the constituency where you reside or not. You can find out this form Electoral Registration Officer or online portal of ECI so I suggest you check it as soon as possible. But some towns its not showing the list in website so for that you need to go Electoral Registration Officer in your area. In this time all major cities have now been displayed on official websites also.

  • A Software Powerhouse ?

    Yesterday , when I went to polling booth , there was a chaos , with a number of people complaining that their names were missing from the Electoral Rolls ( Voter Lists )

    As per news-reports , in Mumbai alone , some 50,000 people returned home without casting their votes – including Deepak Parekh ! Altogether , names of some 15 lakh voters ( out of a total of 98 lakh ) were missing !

    Then there are some 300 million people who will simply won’t walk down to the nearest polling booths , and wait for 1 hour to cast their votes ( – assuming that some 40 % of the 814 million eligible voters do not exercise their right to vote )

    WHY ?

    Going out to vote is becoming a big hassle


    Sure , if Central Government and the Election Commission care to implement my suggestion for developing a mobile App for voting . I called it , VotesApp

    see ..

    Or , just type in Google , ” VotesApp ”


    > No need for 930,000 polling booths / EVMs / Ink / Papers etc
    Every voter’s own mobile becomes a miniature EVM !
    Any registered Voter can vote from anywhere in the World !

    > Nor any need to deploy 1,100,000 people to conduct the polls

    > No need for millions of Police / Military personnel

    > No need for months of advance preparations, across entire country

    > Voting can be completed in just ONE day – instead of over 6 weeks –
    and results can be declared next day !

    > Voting could be 95 % or more !

    > No worry for booth-capture

    > No bogus voting ( Bio-metric ID from built-in camera )

    > No duplicate voting ( Self-destruct after single usage )

    > No worry for any terrorist attacks

    > Enormous saving of time for Voters

    > No need to declare a public holiday – costing thousands of crores
    worth of production

    > Central Government will save, at least , Rs 2,000 Crores .

    If business-friendly BJP government comes to power , it would not
    hesitate to earn Rs 20,000 crores , by enabling 15 million Indian
    businesses to advertise to 814 million voters , thru this mobile VotesApp –
    sharply targeting by Gender / Age / Marital Status / City / Street /
    Education / Income Tax paid / Employed or Jobless ..etc

    > No need for Central Government to stop taking even routine decisions

    If a tiny country like Estonia ( population 1.6 million ) can elect its Members of Parliament thru a VotesApp type mobile App , why can’t we ?

    Already 900+ million Indians have mobiles – all of which , will soon become Smart Phones

    And we call our country , a ” Software Powerhouse ” !
