Topic Description:

Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora has expressed hope that the concept of remote voting may see the light of day by the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing an event on Saturday, the Chief Election Commissioner said a pilot project could begin in the next two-three months. He informed that early this year the poll panel started a research project for enabling remote voting, in consultation with IIT Madras and eminent technologists from IITs and other leading institutions.

Over the last few months, a dedicated team has been working towards giving shape to the project, and the CEC is hopeful that the first pilot project could be rolled out in the next two to three months.

The facility will enable those who cannot be at their polling booths on the day of the election, due to various reasons, to exercise their franchise from a remote location.
