Islamabad: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is launching the World’s biggest voters’ Short Message Service (SMS) of 85 million voters throughout the country on 29th February 2012 at 11:00 AM.
The ceremony will be held in the ECP’s Secretariat Islamabad. By using this service, the eligible voters would be able to send Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC) number on 8300 and in response, the voter would get the voting details like CNIC No., Electoral Area name, Block Code, Tehsil/District and Serial Number. In order to protect the privacy of a voter, the name, parentage and home address would not be shown in the SMS.
This hi-tech technology has got various advantages like voter could get all the information regarding his/her vote within seconds. This service would minimize the possibility of errors in the Final Electoral Rolls. Apart from the display centres, this service could be considered as Virtual Display Centres where the voters sitting anywhere in the country, be able to check his/her vote’s detail.
