गोपनीयता कथन

The SEC collects personal information from electors, other individuals and organisations in order to fulfil its functions under the Indian Electoral Act. The SEC acts in accordance with the privacy principles set out in the Privacy Act to protect all personal information it receives. The information that SEC collects is purely used for the Local Election purpose only. It does not share these data with any other private organizations unless and until it is through RTI act and has to be the State Election Commissioner’s consent.

The SEC Privacy Policy and Framework covers all categories of personal information and is therefore quite detailed. Following are parts of the policy that are relevant to a particular category.

The kinds of personal information that the SEC collects include:

Enrolment Information: The register of electors contains personal enrolment information about MP electors including name, address, date of birth and gender information. Protecting the privacy of this information is very important to the SEC. The Privacy Act regulates how this information is collected and handled.

We disclose political party information in the following ways:

Inspection of the Register of Political Parties : The SEC must make the information of Political Parties available for public inspection. The information may include the name and address of the registered officer of the political party.

Publication of notices of application for registration : The SEC must publicly advertise and publish in the Government Gazette, a notice of the application for registration of a political party. The notice must include the name and address of the registered officer of the political party.

The SEC is responsible for processing candidate nominations for elections. We also have a number of related functions, including Photo Voters List, regulating the distribution of electoral material at or to the Polling Stations on election day.

The SEC collects personal information about candidates in the following circumstances:

  • Nomination of candidates : When nominating, candidates must provide the SEC with name and address information and public contact information. The SEC also collects signature.
  • Election expenditure Report : Following the local election, every candidate should submit an election expense report. Such a statement will contain personal information about the candidate.

The SEC is required by the legislation to disclose candidate information in the following ways:

  • Public inspection of candidate information : As candidates nominate in an election, we make their name, and the contact details provided, publicly available. We publish the details on the SEC website, we release them to the media, and we make them available for inspection at SEC offices.
  • EVM & Ballot papers : The SEC is responsible for printing ballot papers and setting the EVMs for an election. EVMs and Ballot papers include the names of all candidates. Where appropriate, they also include the name of the registered political party that has endorsed the candidate.

Voting Information

The SEC records the fact that you have voted, as well as the means by which you voted. This is to ensure that only those entitled to vote receive a ballot paper, so that no-one votes twice, and to assist with the enforcement of compulsory voting laws.

Information about whether you voted and how you voted is not made public. Legislation requires the SEC to provide the following information, on request, to registered political parties and independent Members of Parliament:

  • The names and addresses of electors who voted at an election;
  • Whether the electors voted personally or by post (if applicable); and
  • The location of the voting centre at which electors voted (if they voted at a voting centre for the electoral district for which they were enrolled).

Employee Information

Personal Information : Personal information relating to employees is collected to enable the SEC to perform one or more of its functions or activities.
