The board said it will ask the government to conduct an all party meeting on compulsory voting.
A delegation of the main opposition Mukherjee on Sept 26 and requested him not to sign the ordinance.
BJP patriarch L K Advani after the meeting said the party is opposed to this ordinance as it is unconstitutional, illegal and immoral.
Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj said the President has assured them that he will examine the ordinance before take any decision.
The Union Cabinet on Sept 24 cleared an ordinance to undo the Supreme Court's order that disqualify convicted MPs and MLAs.
The ordinance aimed to allow convicted legislators to retain positions if the appeal against the conviction is admitted by a higher court within 90 days.
Earlier, the apex court had refused to consider the government's plea seeking review.
However, it had agreed to review its decision on whether a person in jail has the right to contest elections.
On July 10, the Supreme Court ruled that MPs and MLAs, facing criminal charges, if convicted, would stand disqualified from the date of conviction.
They will stand disqualified even if they appealed to a higher court.
The court had cancelled a provision in the electoral law, which ensures that convicted lawmakers cannot be disqualified if they appeal in a higher court within three months.
