SMS based service “Polling at your fingertips” launched in Shillong
Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) has launched SMS based service named Polling at your Fingertips in Shillong, Meghalaya.
The Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), P Naik on 31 March 2014 launched SMS based service named "Polling at your Fingertips" in Shillong, Meghalaya. This is one of the most innovative steps started for the voters under which they will have to enter their EPIC (Elector's Photo Identity Card) number and send it to 9856066666.
The EPIC SMS from the voter will provide him all the details of their electoral number, polling stations, timing and date in their mobile phones. The SMS service will be charged at 3 rupees per SMS.
It seems that the newly launched Polling at Your Fingertips initiative would help the voters in locating their polling stations and reach the actual designated polling stations.
