No comments

In the run-up to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, a mobile application is coming in handy for those whose names are missing or have been “deleted” from the electoral rolls as well as for those who want a voter-identity card.Since the launch of Missing Voters app earlier this year, thousands of eligible voters have been added to the rolls, most of them aided by hundreds of volunteers who downloaded the app to lend their help to the project.Hyderabad-based Khalid Saifullah, whose RayLabs Technologies developed the app, said he started working on it during the Karnataka Assembly elections last year.

Saifullah, along with Abusaleh Shariff, a member secretary of the Rajinder Sachar Committee, had studied the electoral rolls and claimed to have found that nearly 20 per cent of Muslims in Karnataka were missing from the voters’ list. “Some 12 lakh new voters were enrolled through the app in three weeks,” he claimed.As on March 24, there were 88.493 unique users of the app. Saifullah said 41,140 voters have enrolled or re-registered through the app.

The Missing Voters app is available for Android and Apple users.

Users can also get the app link via SMS by giving a missed call to 8099 683 683.
