Amaravati: A new mobile application introduced to help the voters to be aware of the queue lines before they arrive to their designated polling booths during the polling period, in Andhra Pradesh. For the first time, the Election Commission has introduced this mobile application called MyVoteQ, available for free download on Google play store.
This pilot project is being introduced in the today's (Friday) MLC elections across the seven districts.
The AP Chief Electoral Officer Gopalakrishna Dwivedi, while introducing the MyVoteQ app, stated that, a few voters especially in urban areas don't go for voting as they have to wait in the Queue for longer hours. So we have come out with this initiative for voters to know about the number of voters in the Queue.
MyVoteQ is meant for the public to know about the status of queue whereas MyVote-CEOAP is meant for the designated person to enter the queue related information. MyVote-CEOAP is an Android App by which the designated person ie election staff/volunteer would enter the number of voters in the Queue. He has to enter the status of queue after every 15 minutes.
Designated person at the polling station has to download Android App MyVote CEOAP from the Google Play store from an Android based smart phone.
In case, the designated person has not been able to enter the number of voters in the queue, District Designated Officer has to enter the status by finding out the status over phone and update the status through weblink/URLhttp://18.104.22.168 with logins provided.
MyVoteQ will facilitate the public to get latest information of the voters in the queue and can plan their visit to Polling station for voting. District Election Officers are requested to assign the booth wise election staff/volunteers as designated person and identify nodal officer at the district level for MLC Elections of Teachers in Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam, MLC Graduates of East West Godavari Districts and Guntur-Krishna Districts.
The queue related information would be reflected through Weblink too. So 1950 Call centres staff has to be trained to access the information either through App or Weblink and inform the public about queue.
