Trivikrama Ramaraju started this petition to Chief Election Commissioner, Telangana and

The election process for GHMC elections compromised my fundamental right of secret ballot. There is serial number printed on both Ballot Paper and its counter foil. When I submitted my proof and voter serial number details at polling booth, I was asked to sign on the counter foil and my voter list serial number is written by polling officer. I was asked to put voting stamp on one of contestant's names of my choice and keep the folded ballot into Ballot box.

Since my voter list serial number is mentioned on counter foil, it will be easy for Election Commission or Election authority to identify to whom I voted for by bringing my voted ballot paper from ballot box with its counter foil as same ballot serial number is mentioned on them.

This is against citizens fundamental right of secret ballot as there is chance of traceability of my vote to my name and details by election commission.

Its needs review of the election process happened in GHMC in 2020 and require necessary action that may require repolling for GHMC again.

I request you kindly bring it to Chief Election Officer of Telangana and take necessary action.
