The best way to make a decision in a society is through larger participation of all its citizens having access to relevant information. In addition, the internet has redefined relationships among various stakeholders in the process of governance. This improved website of office of the Chief Electoral Officer, J&K (ceojk.nic.in) is an attempt to provide a citizen-friendly, open and transparent interface between the Election Department and the electors of J&K.
The organization has placed in the public domain, all basic information related to elections. The entire electoral roll is in PDF format, with a search facility for citizens to check their names and other particulars in the rolls, the name and telephone number of their Booth Level Officers (BLOs) and the location of their polling stations.
An E-filing facility for addition of new voters, objections to inclusion and deletion and modifications is also available in this website.In addition, SMS services have also been started which enable the voter to receive information about his BLO, Polling station, Status of electoral roll etc on his mobile telephone.
We seek the response of all stakeholders to this website and welcome suggestions for improvement.
