New Android app launched by Election Commission for live tracking of voter turnout

A smartphone running on Android 4.4 KitKat or above to use the app.

The Election Commission of India has launched the beta version of its new Voter Turnout app in Google Play Store. The app would enable users to check the voter turnout in realtime during the elections.

The app can display an estimated voter turnout information at three levels: the state level, the various parliamentary constituencies and at the assembly constituency level. The displayed estimates are calculated from the data gathered by the Returning Officers in real time.

The app would increase the transparency of voter turnout information in public and also ensure that the information would be easily available to the media. The Deputy Election Commissioner Sandeep Saxena said: “once the election is over and polling parties return, the data would be verified and the final figure would be available on the app along with the breakup of male and female voters”.
