PV Desk : The Election Commission, or EC, has gathered the data of almost 2.2 million voters, including about 1.5 million new voters, to update the voter list in the past two weeks. The names of about 700,000 dead voters have also been removed from the list.
The updating of the list, which includes the registration of new voters, the removal of the dead and changing the addresses of voters, will end on Wednesday. The deadline will not be extended further, EC officials said.
Dhaka accounts for the highest number of new voters, while Barisal has registered the least.
