Poll-O-Meter: An experimental measure

During elections to the Karnataka Legislative Council in 1984, the EC wanted to ensure that there was no case of impersonation in case of electors in Teachers’ constituencies in the state.

At the suggestion of the chief electoral officer, verification of the signature of the voter on counter-foil with his signature in the application for enrolment was enforced before the issue of ballot papers as an experimental measure.

This new procedure was found to be useful and was appreciated by contesting candidates and parties.
