It is very important to update the voter list

The Commission said that for this, BLOs will go door-to-door to ensure that the voters there have not shifted, have not died or there is no need to add anyone's name to the voter list. The list will be updated by taking all the information related to updating the voter list. After updating it on August 20, the final publication will be locked. Then elections will be held on the basis of this voter list. The Commission said that the term of Haryana Legislative Assembly is ending on 3 November 2024, Jharkhand on 26 November and Maharashtra Legislative Assembly on 5 January 2025. In such a situation, assembly elections have to be held in these three states in time. For this, it is necessary to update the voter list first.

Preparations for assembly elections intensify in four states

According to the order of the Supreme Court, it is mandatory to conduct assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir before 30 September this year. In such a situation, preparations have been started to conduct assembly elections in these four states. The commission also says that during this time, how many polling stations should be set up in all these states during the elections. This will also be assessed. In which polling stations will be set up near voters living in group housing societies, slums, outskirts of the city and rural areas. So that no one has to go far to cast their vote.

However, the way terrorist incidents have increased in Jammu and Kashmir recently, it will be quite challenging to conduct assembly elections in this state. Assembly elections will be held for the first time in Jammu and Kashmir after the removal of 370. There is a fear that terrorists may attack somewhere in the state before and during the elections. However, the commission is very excited to see the way the voters of Jammu and Kashmir participated enthusiastically in the Lok Sabha elections. The commission says that preparations have been started to conduct assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir along with Haryana, Jharkhand and Maharashtra. Officials say that strong security arrangements will be made.
