It is hereby informed to the general public that 10th National Voters’ Day (NVD) is being celebrated in a befitting manner at UT HQ, Districts, Tehsils & Booth Level throughout Andaman and Nicobar Islands on 25th January 2020 (Saturday) along with other parts of the country with the theme of “Electoral Literacy for Stronger Democracy” with the aim of maximizing enrolment and building awareness in this UT. A series of activities are planned to celebrate the 10th NVD which includes pledge taking by all public offices on 24th January, 2020, Debates on the theme of NVD in Schools/Colleges, Drawing Competitions in Schools/Colleges, Nukkad Natak, awareness activities through hoarding, posters, messages by renowned sports persons, displaying Audio/Video Clips on Cinema Halls, All India Radio, Cable TV etc.
Electoral Literacy Clubs (ELCs) shall also steer the NVD celebrations in Educational Institutions. Chunav Pathshala at polling stations shall act as the hub for pre-NVD activities and shall be roped in for the NVD functions at the PS level.
Special Summary Revision–2020, 10th NVD and Tableau Presentation on Republic Day parade and carrying out the SVEEP activities across the Islands will be major highlights to promote greater participation of people in the democratic process. Achievement of 100% error free electoral roll and having EPIC by all voters is a must to make democracy more stronger and vibrant.
In order to ensure hassle free assistance with regard to electoral activities by general public, a Toll Free No. 1950 has been setup at State Contact Centre & District Contact Centre as well, which will function in all days during office hours. The voters can also search their particulars through online by log on to ECI’s website www.nvsp.in&http://ceoan.and.nic.in or through “Voter helpline” mobile app.
I, therefore, appeal to all the eligible voters especially the youths in the age group of 18-19 years and PwDs to take active part in the 10th NVD generously being organised in this UT to make success of the function and to fulfill the theme of Commission “Electoral Literacy for Stronger Democracy”. I also request all political parties and press media to extend their full support and cooperation in this regard.
