Non-locals in J&K get voting rights, Opposition says ‘imported voters’ will help BJP

In a major decision, Jammu and Kashmir’s Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Hirdesh Kumar has announced that non-locals, including employees, students, labourers or anyone from outside who is living ordinarily in Jammu and Kashmir, can register their names in the voting list, and vote in the J&K elections.

He said that the requirement of domicile is not necessary for outsiders to get enlisted as voters. He has also said that armed forces personnel from other states who are posted at peace stations in J&K can also get their names added in the voter list.
