He said as per the directive of the Election Commission of India, the election department was carrying out a special drive for summary revision of photo electoral rolls till December 15.

He said a two-day special camp is also being organised by booth-level officers (BLOs) at their respective polling booths in the district on December 5 and 6 from 10 am to 5 pm, where voters can file claims and objections.

The DC said that voters could apply for inclusion in the electoral rolls by submitting Form 6 while Form 7 can be submitted for deletion of name from the rolls while Form 8 is for correction to particulars entered in the rolls. He said that for transportation of vote to some other constituency within the district, people can submit Form 8A.
