Mission-277 campaign launched by State Election Department for Vidhan Sabha Elections-2022 under UTSAV

Shimla, 16th November, 2022. It was due to Mission-277 campaign launched by State Election Department for Vidhan Sabha Elections-2022 under UTSAV (Universal Transparent election through Systemic Awareness of Voters) and SVEEP activities that 6 per cent increase was achieved in targeted 277 polling stations, which witnessed low voter participation earlier, stated Chief Electoral Officer Maneesh Garg here today.

After identification of these polling stations, a detailed analysis was done to find out the reasons for low voting in these polling stations. Some of the reasons that emerged were the migratory population, boycott owing to local issues, youth, urban apathy and, voter apathy, especially among central government employees belonging to other states. Besides, electors working in other states, adverse weather conditions, wedding season and harvesting season during the elections were few other reasons.

Taking all these measures into considerations, an array of targeted interventions, including awareness programmes, regular meetings at various levels, personal visits of District Election Officers/Returning Officers/ Senior officers/Block level officers,  pro-active election literacy clubs, chunav  pathshala activities, interventions by booth awareness groups and mass mobilization activities were undertaken.

The State Election Department targeted 277 such polling stations under its campaign ‘ Mission -277’. There has been a significant improvement in the voter turnout in these 277 polling stations, stated Shri Garg
