The forms will be disposed of by Electoral Registration Officers (EROs) by April 29 and applicants, whose forms will be accepted by the EROs, will be eligible to cast their vote on May 19.

Around 69 forms for enrolment have also been received from the overseas citizens, which will also be processed and decided by April 29. “As many as 15,803 forms for deletion received before the date of announcement of elections (March 10) have already been decided,” he added.
