Points to be noted on Voter ID card UP
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 !!.
