            Among the many milestones recorded during the recently concluded Lok Sabha Election 2019, Electronically Transmitted Postal Ballot System (ETPBS) is one of its kind, in the world’s largest democratic election process. Compared to 5,376 numbers of registered Service Electors of last General Election to Lok Sabha, 2014 from 1-Nagaland Parliamentary Constituency, a record highest number of 7,490 were enrolled as Service Electors through online registration with the dedicated portal who were sent postal ballots electronically. For the first time a full-fledged online registration portal for service electors has been used to save processing time, resources and human errors.

            Persons working in Central Forces under Arms Act and government officials deployed in Embassies outside the country are, classified as Service Voters and are provisioned for online enrolment. As Nagaland went for poll in the first phase, total 7,490 postal ballots were dispatched electronically using the flagship IT programme of Election Commission of India, known as ETPBS. Out of which, 5,295 e postal ballots were received indicating 70.69% turnout, which is significant improvement compared to 2014 when turnout was only 13.73%.

            ETPBS is developed by Election Commission of India, for the use of the Service Voters. It is a fully secured system, having two layers of security. Secrecy of voting is maintained through the use of OTP and PIN and no duplication of casted ETPB is possible due to the unique QR Code in the portal https://www. Through this system the service voters cast their vote on an electronically received postal ballot, from anywhere outside their constituency, thus the chances of losing the voting opportunity has reduced. The purpose of the online system was to create convenient and easy-to-use online system for Defense Personnel to become Service Voters.

            With the motto of “no voter to be left behind”, Election Commission of India’s ETPBS has empowered and ensured all eligible service electors with their constitutional power to vote while performing their duty for the nation.
