PUNJAB VOTERS CAN CHECK QUEUES AT POLLING BOOTH FROM HOME

Chandigarh: Voters in Punjab can now check the length of queues at their polling booths from the comfort of their homes on June 1, the day of polling. Punjab Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Sibin C launched the ‘Voter Queue Information System’ on Saturday to enhance voter convenience. This system has been developed in collaboration with NIC Punjab and Meta.

Providing details about the system, Sibin C explained that voters need to send a message by typing ‘Vote’ to the WhatsApp number 7447447217. They will then receive a link that, when clicked, presents two options: (1) Location and (2) Booth.

For the location-wise option, voters will share their location, which will then display a list of polling booths near their house on the mobile screen. By entering the booth number, voters will receive real-time information on how many people are standing in the queue at that booth.

For the booth-wise option, voters will first select the state of Punjab, followed by their district. This will bring up all the assembly constituencies in that district. After selecting their assembly constituency and entering the booth number, voters will be able to see the number of people currently queuing to vote at their booth.

CEO Sibin C emphasized that all while necessary arrangements are being made to protect voters from the heat on June 1, the ‘Voter Queue Information System’ will help voters decide the best time to visit their polling booth, avoiding long queues and reducing waiting time in the heat.
