supervisionnone of the major parties can deny awareness of errors in the list and that tactics are adopted to make use of these Indeedeven the Supreme Court recently acknowledged gaps in checks and balances in voting processeswhen noting that the upcoming None of the Above (NOTA) option would help prevent fraudulentproxy voting Although doing so requires collusion between party representatives as observerslocal administrative staff and police personnelsuch practices while becoming increasingly difficult are still within the realm of possibility The 2008 assembly election data illustrates that the scale of the phantom voter list is a potentially serious problem In the upcoming electionthis issue could be an even bigger factor to considergiven that it has become a tight three-way contest The next question is how this issue has gone unnoticed Importantlyerrors in the list do not rest on bureaucratic neglect or incompetencebut rather signal the emergence of a new order: a dynamicmobileurban citizenry overwhelming an electoral system designed for a different electoral demographic Urban electoral list management is completely different from its rural counterpart In rural areaschanges in voter lists are not substantialsince peoples residences are fairly permanentand hardly anyone new settles in a village Urban areas see largescale migration both into the city as well as within the city Given that India has so far been predominantly ruralwith a predominantly rural electoral basethe entire electoral machinery has been built around managing rural electoral lists and not urban lists that require more consistent updating and verification Thusvoter list errors is not an issue Delhi faces alone but one that affects all of urban India To stress that this is widely an

error A whole new system to manage urban electoral rolls will have to be created if this issue is to be addressed This will definitely involve a much bigger role for technology Such technology could be used to ensure voter lists are updated more frequentlymapped onto GIS-based polling partspublished more transparently for public scrutinyand with more channels for citizens to add their names as they move from village to citycity to cityand within cities There will also be greater need for grassroots engagementsince validation of a persons legitimate right to be on an electoral roll will require validation not only of identity but also of residence If we are to uncover and address this X-factorespecially in the upcoming Delhi electionwhat is needed in the short-term is greater attention to the election process at urban centres on polling day In additionthe collection and dissemination of votes cast on election day against votes appearing on voter lists information currently
