London sources stated that Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra on Tuesday called on all Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) to register online to boost the numbers of such voters ahead of provisions being put in place for either proxy voting or voting through embassies and missions for them.

When addressing a gathering of the Indian Professionals Forum (IPF) at the Indian High Commission here on Decoding Indian General Election 2019', Chandra said the ease of nri voting remains a focus for the Election Commission so that all Indians anywhere in the world can participate in its democracy. "I would call on NRIs to get themselves registered as a voter online and apparently voice must be heard as it is their constitutional right to participate in the elections".



At present, registered nri voters have to be physically present in their constituency in india to cast their ballots. The Election Commissioner also delved into the issue of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and the success of the system of the Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPT) to ensure complete accuracy and transparency of the country's seven-phase electoral process this year. He said, adding that random checks conducted after some complaints had proved the reliability of the system.
