Odisha Panchayat Polls: Voters Find Names Missing From List

Jajpur: Though the first phase of panchayat elections in Jajpur district remained by and large peaceful, many voters who had voters’ identity cards were seen returning disappointed after not finding their names on the voters’ list.
“I have exercised my franchise in every election for the last 25 years. I am surprised that my name is not on the list today,” said Lata Samal of Kumari under Dharmasala block in the district.

Samal said she went from both to booth to find out her name on the voters’ list, but was unsuccessful.

Like Samal, a number of voters across the block were seen returning home without casting their votes because their names did not feature on the voters’ list at several polling stations in the block.
