The Jammu and Kashmir State Election Commissioner (SEC), K.K. Sharma said on Monday (December 21) that the District Development Council (DDC) election results could be accessed online today (December 22).
While briefing the media about the availability of election results on the website http://ceojk.nic.in, the SEC stated that the state election authority would facilitate people and the media alike to access the election results and trends on a dynamic basis. The counting of votes will take place today.
He said that soon after the randomisation and time-tested protocols, the ballot boxes would be opened and ballot papers would be mixed subsequently for counting and the updated information would be given to the people on the website.
The SEC added that the counting today would decide the fate of 2,178 candidates for the 280 DDC seats.
He also informed that the overall voting percentage in all the eight phases across the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir was 51.42 per cent and over 30 lakh votes would be counted at the counting centres today.
While giving a demonstration, Anil Salgotra, Secretary, State Election Commission, briefed the media about the functioning of the website. He said that people along with the media would be able to have access to the counting trends, final results, and party-wise trends for all the 280 DDC constituencies.
He added that the website can also be accessed for the trends with respect to a particular constituency in a given district and a particular party, besides the information for top two leading candidates and the overall votes polled for all the candidates can also be accessed.
The DDC elections are the first elections to take place in Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of its special status under Article 370 and the bifurcation of the erstwhile state into two union territories in 2019.
