CLAIM ID

There are close to 2 million voters in India who have votes in two different states.

There is insufficient data to verify the claim accurately as of now.

There is insufficient data to verify the claim accurately as of now. Ahead of the assembly elections in Kerala, opposition party leader Ramesh Chennithala of the UDF alleged that more than one lakh people in electoral rolls have voted in multiple constituencies or in the same constituency.

He said that 1,09,693 people had voted in other constituencies apart from their original place of residence. He further claimed that the election commission had also issued multiple voter IDs to the same people, taking the total number of voters in the state to 4.25 lakh.

Following Kerala CM, Pinarayi Vijayan dismissed the opposition's allegations and further alleged that the woman quoted by the opposition leader, whose name was added five times to the voter's list, is a Congress voter. Her name was included in the electoral roll by the Congress party workers, according to the chief minister.

However, the state election commission officials noted that there is no complete solution for the issue of having voters' names on multiple voters’ lists as alleged and added that if such names were identified, the additional names would be removed from the voter's list.

Furthermore, there is also no exact data to establish that there are 2 million double voters in the country as no such claims are addressed by the Election Commission of India, and hence we mark it as unverifiable.
