Drop in turnout disappointing, says Delhi CEO

With nearly 8.5 lakh people enrolled to vote here not exercising their franchise on Sunday, the voter turnout in Delhi dropped by about 5% as compared to the 2014 Lok Sabha election.
Chief Election Officer Ranbir Singh said he had expected a higher turnout as officials at his office and at the district level had worked hard on voter awareness and motivational campaigns. “The drop in turnout was disappointing,” he said.
Since the announcement of the election dates, the CEO’s office and the district officials had undertaken several voter awareness programmes, including putting up posters and advertisements on public transport, billboards, messages on radio, exhibitions in malls and public parks, ‘awareness runs’ and Sufi concerts among other measures.
