DMK Organisation Secretaries TKS Elangovan and RS Bharathi submitted a memmorandum with Chief Electoral Officer Sandeep Saxena, complaining of "multiplication of double entries" of electors.
    
"Some names of the voters with their photographs are entered in more than one place with different identification numbers. Those persons will be receiving more than one identification number. This anomaly will make it possible for the elector to cast more than one vote in an election," the party said.
    
Such a situation will not 'augur well' for democracy evenas EC will "end up incurring heavy expenditure," it said.
    
DMK alleged that local Tahsildars and revenue officials, entrusted with the duty of inclusion and deletion of names, were not receiving the complaints made by DMK's booth level agents in this regard 'with the spirit and enthusiasm required.'
    
"We request you to take appropriate action to rectify this anomaly, otherwise the election will be a mere mockery," the party said and attached some copies of voter cards it claimed were duplications, given to one individual with different numbers.
