Points to be noted about voting
Even if you have voted in previous elections, have a voter ID card, and have not shifted your residence, even then your name may have got deleted from the electoral rolls. Please verify and restore your name if deleted.
Also, if your name is not in the voter list, then you cannot vote, even if you have a voter id card !!. On the other hand, if your name is in the voter list but you don't have a voter id card, you can still vote with any govt issued photo card (Driving license, passport, Aadhar card , ration card etc) to identify yourself.Category: experience voting
