Accordingly the Lok Sabha elections are nearing and as a citizen of India, if you have to be able to cast your vote, the most important thing is for your name to appear in the electoral roll. Reportedly an electoral roll is a list of names prepared by the Election Commission of India. Meanwhile this includes the names of all the people, aged 18 years and above, who have voter ID cards and basically, all the people who will be able to vote for the upcoming elections.
Follow these steps to check if your name is on the voter list. As per report the Election Commission of India will publish the electoral roll on its website on January 31. So starting February 1, Indian citizens can check whether their names are on the list. For this you need to log on to the National Voters’ Service Portal. Furthermore on the left hand side, you will see a search bar, where you can search for your name and see if it appears on the electoral roll. When once you click on this bar, it will take you to the electoral search page, where you will have to fill in the mandatory details like name, date of birth, state, district, constituency, and gender and so on. After this search, you will either be able to see your name on the roll or there may be cases where the name does not appear.
Moreover depending on the case, the EC has various forms on the National Voters’ Service Portal. On the main page, one can see the links to various forms. New voters must fill form 6 in order to register themselves as voters. You will need a passport sized photo and proof of age and residence. To update or correct the details on the electoral roll, one must fill Form 8.If you have relocated to a different location within the constituency, use Form 8A.If you wish to delete your name from the voters’ list from any constituency and relocate to a new constituency, form 6 must be filled along with form 7. Form 6 is to register to vote in a new constituency and by filling form 7, your name will be deleted from the voters’ list in the old constituency.
