Jaipur, Sept 03: The final voter list with electoral photo-ID cards for the forthcoming assembly elections in Rajasthan would be out by September 29.

Till June 30, there were over 3.52 crore voters listed in the State Election Commission's record and the number would go up as the new enrollment process would continue till September end, Chief Electoral Officer Vinod Jutshi told reporters today.

Though the process of enrolling voters would continue till the last date of filing nominations by the candidates, the election dates are yet to be announced by the Chief Election Commission in Delhi, he said.

Voters should have photo-ID cards at the time of polling and his/her name should resemble the voter list available in the booth, he said.

Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) would be battery operated and the district returning officer would randomly change the code word to ensure free and fair poll, he said.

The state election office has also deployed five observers since August 15 to visit all major constituencies to verify the process of electoral list making, he said, adding they would continue their vigil till the polls are over.

The district collectors have been asked to inform about the vulnerable and sensitive seats going for polls after consultation with the SPs, he said.

About 79 per cent of voters have got their photo-Id cards, while remaining would be provided on the eve of polls, he claimed.
