Vote from home UPSC NOTE

 

  • In a pathbreaking initiative, the Election Commission of India (ECI), for the first time in a Lok Sabha Election, has provided the facility of home voting for the elderly and Persons with Disabilities in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections

  • Voters above 85 years of age and Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) with 40% benchmark disability can avail the optional home voting facility. 

  • Voters in this category have already began casting their votes for phase I and II of polling.  

  • This initiative marks a significant stride towards ensuring inclusivity and accessibility of the electoral process and in bolstering democratic participation. 

  • There are over 81 lakh 85+ aged voters and 90 lakh + PwD voters registered across the country.

Procedure

  • The procedure to avail this facility is simple yet thorough. 

  • Within five days of the election notification, eligible voters must complete Form 12D and submit it to the returning officer

  • PwD voters submit a baseline disability certificate with their applications.

  • Booth Level Officer (BLO) is responsible for retrieving Form 12D from the elector's place of residence when the required documentation has been completed. 

  • Candidates receive a list of these electors in order to maintain accountability and transparency; if they wish, they can choose a representative to supervise the process.

  • Following this, a dedicated team of polling officials along with security officials visits the voter's residence to collect their votes. 

  • Crucially, voters are notified ahead of time of the planned visit, allowing them to be prepared to exercise their right to vote in a safe and comfortable manner. 

  • To further expedite the procedure and improve accessibility, voters can also receive notifications via SMS about the days when their home voting facility will be active. 

  • The complete process is videographed for transparency.
