ERONet to help check duplication of votersTimes of IndiaNovember 22, 2018
With the help of this system, people can register themselves for getting a voter card and can change the details online.
The application will also help poll officials in checking inaccuracies in information related to the voters and even duplicity of cards.
“We implement the new ERONet system in the state from Wednesday.
A senior officer involved with the programme said that the software will give the election official an idea whether the person he was enrolling in the voters’ list is a first-time voter or has multiple registrations across the country.
In the present system, if someone wants to get registered in another state as a voter he has to get his name deleted from the earlier list.
For example, if a voter registered in Delhi wants to get enrolled in Gujarat, BLO in Delhi will immediately get information through the system that the voter is getting registered in Gujarat.
After online registration, the officer said, the voters will get a unique ID with which they can check the status of the application till the completion of the registration process.
The online application will simultaneously reach the election returning officer, BLO and supervisor.
The BLO will then get it verified from the applicant.
Another benefit of this system is that the voter can upload personal details at his or her level.
