VISAKHAPATNAM:Chief Election Officer Bhanwar Lal directed the officials to clear all the pending electoral online applications as the first draft of the electoral lists would be published on October 5.
In a video conference with the district collectors here Thursday, Bhanwar Lal said that the government would soon launch a software to identify the polling stations and details of the voters through a digital map. Once the government releases the software, the details would be added to the database, he added. He also directed that the names of the voters who had migrated, shifted, and died should be deleted from the electoral list. He instructed the collectors to appoint one official to each polling booth and one supervising officer for 10 booths.
