    No. ECI/PN/73/2019 Dated: 21st July, 2019 ETPBS & Service Voter; a successful turnout for Lok Sabha Election 2019 Among the many milestones recorded during the recently concluded Lok Sabha Election 2019, Electronically Transmitted Postal Ballot System (ETPBS) is one of its kind, in the world’s largest democratic election process. Compared to 13,27,627 number of registered Service Electors of last General Election in 2014, a record highest number of 18,02,646 were enrolled as Service Electors through online registration with the dedicated portal who were sent postal ballots electronically. For the first time a full-fledged online registration portal for service electors has been used to save processing time, resources and human errors. Persons working in Central Forces under Arms Act and Government officials deployed in Embassies outside the country are, classified as Service Voters and are provisioned for online enrolment. Out of the total number of Service Electors, 10, 16,245 were from Ministry of Defence, 7,82,595 from Ministry of Home Affairs (Central Armed Police Forces), 3539 of Ministry of External Affairs and State Police 267. In the seven phases spanning election, total 18, 02,646 postal ballots were dispatched electronically using the flagship IT programme of Election Commission of India, known as ETPBS. In 2019, 10,84,266 e postal ballots were received indicating 60.14% turnout, which is significant improvement compared to 2014 when turnout was only 4%.. ETPBS is developed by Election Commission of India, for the use of the Service Voters. It is a fully secured system, having two layers of security. Secrecy of voting is maintained through the use of OTP and PIN and no duplication of casted ETPB is possible due to the unique QR Code in the portal https://www. Through this system the service voters cast their vote on an electronically received postal ballot, from anywhere outside their constituency, thus the chances of losing the voting opportunity has reduced. The purpose of the online system was to create convenient and easy-to-use online system for Defense Personnel to become Service Voters. With the motto of “no voter to be left behind”, Election Commission of India’s ETPBS has empowered and ensured all eligible service electors with their constitutional power to vote while performing their duty for the nation.

    No. ECI/PN/20/2019 Dated: 22nd February, 2019 Press Note Substantial increase in number of Service Voters The Unregistered eligible Service Personnel can still file their applications for registration in the last part of Electoral Roll The process of summary revision of last parts of electoral rolls with reference to 01.01.2019 as the qualifying date has concluded with the final publication of last parts today i.e. on 22.02.2019. A total of 16,62,993 service personnel have been enrolled as Service Electors in the Country in the final last part of electoral roll 2019. In 2014 the corresponding figure was 13,27,627. Thus the 2019 ER has recorded a substantial increase on the total number of service voters of 2014. This increase in number of service voters has been due to the Commission’s all out efforts to maximise the registration of service electors during summary revision 2019 and active cooperation of the services/departments concerned and greater participation of service personnel. As per the provisions of law and instructions of the Commission, all left out and un-registered eligible service personnel can still file their applications for registration in the last part of electoral roll during continuous updation till the last date of filing nominations of elections, and they can submit the Form 2, 2A or 3, as the case may be, through their Record officer/Commanding Officer/Authority concerned on the service voter portal i.e. It is clarified that all the Forms received till 10 days before the last date of filing nominations shall be disposed of and the names of the applicants shall be included in last part of electoral rolls, if the Forms have been found complete in all respect by the ERO concerned. In order to ensure that maximum number of service personnel are enrolled in the last part and exercise their electoral right of franchise at elections, all the services/departments concerned have been requested to focus on bridging the gap in registration, if any, by motivating all unregistered eligible service personnel to get themselves enrolled in the electoral roll as service elector during continuous updation so that they are not deprived of voting at impending election for want of registration in the electoral roll.
