Hi, I found this interesting article by a guy who downloaded and processed the Voter list of Delhi: https://medium.com/p/1aff55526881
I found this via a discussion on Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/22pn8u/i_wrote_a_few_simple_python_scripts_to_retrieve/ I'll like to quote his findings here: 1. It is possible to automate the retrieval of every single PDF roll all across India 2. These PDFs can then be processed in a matter of minutes to produce details like Addresses, names, father’s name, gender, age and voters ID number for every single registered voter of India 3. Nearly 25% of the Voter IDs assigned within only Delhi fail to conform to the government format, and fail the Luhn Checksum test used to validate them. It is likely that other states are in a similar, if not worse condition Regards, Devdatta Tengshe -- For more details about this list http://datameet.org/discussions/ --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "datameet" group.
