and District Election Officer’s Message -
This site has
primarily been made to improve communication between the
electors of Thane District and the Election Branch in
the Collector’s Office, Thane and the Election Branches of the
Tahsil Offices in the District. It provides adequate and
relevant information about the office of the District Election
Officer, and the various activities conducted by the Election
Branches in the Collectorate and Tahsil Offices in Thane
In the Delimitaion Exercise which was recently completed the
number of Assembly Constituencies in Thane District has gone
up to 24 from 13. The number of parliamentary constituencies
have also increased to four from two.
I appeal to all the citizens
of Thane District who are 18 years of age as on 1st
January 2009 to enroll themselves as voters if they are not
There is a common perception that enrolment of names as voters
is a cumbersome process. This website has been set up with
primary aim to give relevant information to citizens regarding
the election process. Various important forms are also
available on the site for download purposes. It also aims to
make the election process easier to understand and increase
citizen participation in the election process
While the main concern of the citizen is how to enroll his
name in the electors list, the lack of information about how
to go about this process is the main hurdle for the citizen.
This website aims to remove that hurdle.
Although every effort is made to make the website as
citizen-friendly as possible, suggestions which will help us
in improving website are always welcome.
Collector & District Election Officer
