Governor N.N. Vohra has greeted the people on the occasion of the 7th National Voters' Day which is being celebrated on 25th January. The Governor has observed that it is befitting that the theme of the this year's National Voters' Day is "Empowering Young and Future Voters", which would specially focus on the marginalised segments of the society, homeless persons and tribal communities, Service Voters, NRIs and other identified groups.
The Special Summary Revision-2017 of the electoral rolls in Jammu and Kashmir has resulted in over 1.95 lakh new voters being enrolled. The Governor has expressed hope that all other eligible citizens in the State shall lose no further time in getting enrolled so that they become entitled to exercise their franchise at the forthcoming polls in the State.
