Karnataka's Chief Electoral Officer, Sanjiv Kumar told reporters that the special one day camp will be held between 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday.
"Electoral rolls were published on February 28. However, the last date for applying has been extended to April 14, giving people another chance to enrol. Anyone applying after that can't vote in the May 12 elections,'' Kumar said.
"Just having a voter ID doesn't entitle you to vote. This is a chance for people to check if the voters' list contains their names," said Kumar.
Kumar said about 1.7 lakh newly enrolled voters will soon receive electronic photo identity cards (EPICs) from election officials at their doorstep. New voters who register by April 14 will get their EPICs by April 21, he added.
