Shri. Shrikant Deshpande

Principal Secretary & Chief Electoral Officer, Maharashtra

CEO's Message

The common perception about the election process is that it is not citizen-friendly. This perception is primarily due to lack of information about the process. This website aims to make the election process easier to understand and increase citizen participation in the election process. While the main concern of the citizen is how to enrol his name in the electors list, the lack of information about how to go about this process is the main hurdle for the citizen. This website aims to remove that hurdle. A new feature of the forthcoming elections will be the affidavits that will be filed by the candidates. All these affidavits will be made available on the website to enable the voters to make informed choices. While every effort is made to make the website as citizen-friendly as possible, suggestions are always welcome.
