The display of the voter turnout has been very limited and was only by way of press releases.
Voter Turnout App made it easy for the users to view the approximate voter turnout on their mobile phones during the General Election 2019. Voter Turnout App is used to display approximate voter turnout details of each Assembly Constituency/ Parliamentary Constituency. Not only citizens but the application can also be used by media houses.
The Voter Turnout App allows citizens to access the approximate cumulative voter turnout percentage overall as well as for each state separately. The application was launched on 18 April 2019
The application is available on both the Google play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=in.gov.eci.pollturnout&hl=en_IN and Apple App Store: https://apps.apple.com/in/app/voter-turnout-app/id1536366882
The application is designed to show the approximate Voter Turnout percentage for each state which can be drilled down to District and Constituency level.
There is no data entry provision in Voter Turnout App, as it is only meant for the dissemination of the approximate Voter turnout percentages.
The main features of the App are:
- Display approximate Voter Turnout poll percentage (Poll Day)
- Filter Election type (to view Election wise, State-wise, District wise, Constituency wise)
The application has been used extensively by the media and other users ever since it was launched. During the poll days this application was used by 2,08,602 users to view the turnout.
