Defence personnel at peace stations can be voters: SC

Posted on 24th Mar 2014 05:07 pm by admin

New Delhi, March 24 (IANS) The Supreme Court Monday said all defence personnel posted at peace stations and who are not already registered as voters can get themselves enrolled as electors in the general election where the poll process has not yet commenced.

An apex court bench headed by Justice R.M. Lodha, taking on record a statement by the election commission, said a statutory bar that a service personnel should be resident of peace areas for three years along with his family will not come in his way to get registered as a voter for the forthcoming election.

However, he should be posted at the peace station from Jan 1, 2014 and continue to be so to qualify to be registered as a voter.

However, this will not impact the voters list in 225 Lok Sabha constituencies where the election process has commenced.
