The campaign was started on July 1 this year in which colleges were targetted in order to register fresh voters. As part of the drive to register voters with special emphasis on youngsters, the administration has registered over 46,000 voters in the age range of 18-21 years. “A total of 2 lakh voter enrollment forms has been distributed among the students of these colleges.
