The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Friday released the final electoral roll for 2021 Assembly elections in West Bengal. This with the inclusion of 20.5 lakh new electorates comprising 2.68 first-time voters aged between 18 and 19.

According to the November draft roll, the total number of voters in the state was 7,18,49,307. However after the final voter-list released – the number stood at 8,32,94,960.

Among the total electorates, 3,63,7,307 are male, 3,59,26,064 are female and 1,590 are third gender voters. The total number of voters in Bengal increased by 2 per cent comparing to the previous final electoral roll.

However, the ECI said that so far, if anyone wants to add their name to the voter list or correct the name and anything can be done offline and online.

According to the Election Commission, people will not have to suffer in the scorching heat of summer this time as the upcoming Assembly elections in the state held much earlier.

The ECI may announce the election schedule in mid-February, keeping in mind the Covid-19 pandemic situation.
