The Election Commission of India (ECI) has published the final electoral rolls across all states and union territories ahead of the 2024 general elections. With over 96 crore voters, it marks the largest electorate in history, reflecting a vibrant democracy.

Significant Milestones in Enrollment

The intensive revision exercise under Special Summary Revision (SSR) 2024 has led to several noteworthy achievements on multiple parameters.

  • Gender Parity: Female voter registration has surpassed male enrollment for the first time. The electoral gender ratio has improved from 940 in 2023 to 948 in 2024.
  • Youth Participation: Over 2 crore young voters between 18-29 years have been added.
  • Accessibility: 88 lakh Persons with Disabilities (PwD) have been identified in the database to facilitate voting.
  • Tribal Inclusion: 100% voter registration attained for Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTGs).

Electoral Roll Integrity Ensured

After thorough verification, names of nearly 1.7 crore deceased, shifted and duplicate voters have been removed. This comprehensive cleanup upholds the purity of the electoral process.

Rolls Revised in J&K, Assam Post-Delimitation

The ECI has also completed revision of electoral rolls in Jammu & Kashmir and Assam following delimitation. In J&K, the final tally stands at 86.9 lakh voters, up from 85.5 lakh in the draft roll.

Continuous Updation to Allow Further Enrollment

Eligible citizens who are still unenrolled can register as voters under continuous updation until the last date of filing nomination.

The ECI has emphasized that transparent and inclusive electoral rolls form the foundation of free and fair polls. The record voter enrollment coupled with purity of rolls marks a major milestone as India gears up for the 2024 elections.
