Through this, officials associated with the Sweep programme are visiting 100% of the houses and contacting 100% of the voters, giving them information about the booths and motivating them to vote.

The District Magistrate said that under the Knock the Door programme, the Anganwadi workers should go to all the houses in their constituency, tell them about their booth, and make them aware of voting. PDS dealers should make people aware of voting in their areas. The aim of the Sweep programme is that each voter should know about his booth and cast his vote in a fair manner without any fear or inducement. The District Magistrate appealed to the people of Patna to set a record for voting percentage in every area of Patna this time.
