Elections 2024: booth-wise voting at home for seniors is on. Voting slips distributed

The poll process for Elections 2024 is rolling.

On one side, poll teams are visiting seniors who signed up to cast their ballot, to do so. On the other, voting slips are being distributed to voters, confirming their names on the ballot list and the booths to vote.

Leaders of Mandaveli Raja Street RWA organised a vote slip collection camp in Dwaraka Apartments on Thursday afternoon.

The officer in charge of the Booth 211 at Raja Muthiah School was available for voters in the area to collect their voting slips.

Community activist Ganga Sridhar said home polling provision should have been extended to people who had mobility problems also irrespective of their age. It would have been nice if such information was conveyed to the residents through media on time with contact numbers, she added.

TheĀ  RWA has requested the local election booth organisers to make the polling booth handicapped-friendly with the provision of a wheel chair and a ramp for seniors and less abled people.

Meanwhile, poll teams are covering booth by booth zones the process of allowing seniors who registered with Form 12D to cast the ballot at their residence.

Areas like Abiramapuran, Mandavelipakkam and Mandaveli reported that this process was on / completed.

  1. I have sent a writeup on wall painting at Demonte street, Santhome twice and it was not published. Only Mandaveli area news are published even if they are not of much significance. Is Santhome area not covered by your magazine?
