Election can not be viewed as an isolated event, but is a part of a holistic process for promoting democratic governance. Greater public information & outreach capacity, transparency, capacity building and empowerment of the citizens are the key areas which are being focused upon by the Election Department. Upgrading and refining of Electoral Rolls is a continuous process. Electronic management of data has helped in creating a system where we are in constant touch with the electors through various means . In times to come, we propose to strengthen the process by plotting the coverage of polling stations on the digital map of Chandigarh. We are working towards free flow of information & on line processing of electoral data & production of identity cards. We seek active co-operation of all the citizens of Chandigarh for setting up a truly citizen friendly and transparent system leading to free and fair elections with high voter participation. We also seek your suggestions for further improving the system and increasing public satisfaction.
