Mangaluru, Dec 6: The ongoing voter registration campaign in Dakshina Kannada district has successfully added 25,045 new voters who have recently turned 18.

Records indicate that there are 45,530 youths who have reached the age of 18 in the district. However, only 25,045 have registered their names in the voter list, leaving 20,494 pending applications that the district administration is actively working to process and include in the voter list.

Among the pending applications, Form-6 applications of 3,742 youth voters await disposal. The Election Commission assures that this process will be completed soon, ensuring that eligible candidates are added to the voter list. The Election Commission currently designates four eligibility dates each year for voters to register their names, allowing those who turn 18 on January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1 to add their names to the electoral roll.

The deadline for inclusion of names of youth voters in the current line is December 9. Voters can download Form-6 from the Google Play Store using a mobile app or apply for inclusion in the voter list through the website. Alternatively, they can submit Form-6 applications to the booth level officer of their respective polling stations.
