EC Warns Supreme Court Against Public Disclosure of Polling Station Data, Cites Potential for Electoral Disruption

The Election Commission informed the Supreme Court that public disclosure of polling station-wise voter turnout data could disrupt the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, dismissing claims of a 5-6% increase in voter turnout as false and misleading. The EC argued that indiscriminate disclosure and public posting of Form 17C, which details votes polled at each station, are not statutorily required and could lead to mischief and manipulation of images, thereby compromising the electoral process.
