A clerical error in the voters' list created some confusion when Chief Election Commissioner Navin Chawla [ Images ] came to exercise his franchise at a polling booth in New Delhi [ Images ] on Thursday.
On reaching booth number 86 at Nirman Bhavan in the high profile New Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, Chawla found that his residential address in the voters' list was wrong.
"It was a clerical error. The wrong address created some confusion but it was corrected by the poll officials," Chawla told PTI after casting his vote. His wife and daughter voted as per the corrected rolls.
The CEC appealed to voters to come out and vote as millions of people had put in their efforts for many months to make the electoral process possible all over the country.
"Voting is not only about a candidate or a party, it is also a vote for democracy. Just as an ocean is made of drops of water, democracy is made of every vote. I hope every voter will come out and vote," he said.
