During the drive that started on April 1, a mere 1.42 lakh of the total 15 lakh voters who didn’t have their photos on the voters’ registration list have got their pictures updated.
“Despite spreading awareness among the voters, we got a low response. Our BLOs are even going door-to-door asking voters for their photographs.
However, they sending them back by giving various excuses. Therefore, the department decided to give it a last try before the drive ends,” said deputy district election officer Apurva Wankhde.
The drive of updating photos on voters’ registration list ends at June 30 following which the department will start publishing the list for poll booths.
