Chief Electoral Officer
Information is power, and the key to democracy is ready and easy access to information on the part of the general public. Old style bureaucracies have been traditionally chary of parting with information, but the Election Commission of India has always been as transparent as possible, and has been urging its CEOs in the states to set up their own web-sites too.
At present we have placed the basic vital information, entire electoral rolls in PDF format, so that the citizens of Punjab can check whether their names figure on the rolls and where their polling station is located, General Lok Sabha Election/General Election to State Legislative Assembly Information. A search facility over electoral database to find the Voters and Polling Stations details are also available.
We seek the active co-operation of the citizens of Punjab for setting up a truly citizen-friendly, transparent and fair system. They are also requested to e-mail their suggestion for further improving the system and increasing public satisfaction.
