The application was designed to raise awareness and maximize voting in the upcoming assembly elections, with the help of BLOs. The aim of the application was to achieve increase in voter turn out. For this, the app sent automated messages to voters one day prior to voting and on the day of voting. In this way, all the voters were reminded to cast their vote and participate in this noble event for democracy.
Only the officers and admin could access the application. BLO’s could validate voters data specially mobile number while going for voter slip distribution with the help of this application. On the day of the voting, the voters who have already cast their vote were sent ‘Thank you’ messages. The remaining voters were again sent the reminder to request voting. The application also made sure that on 28th November, the voting day afternoon, another voice message was sent to remind voters with an appeal to vote.
At the time of the election, the officer could search a particular voter by his voter ID number, and check under his name to state that he has given his vote. In this way, it was effortless to know how many people have not voted.
The application thus helped in knowing how many voters have given their vote and how many haven’t.
