Here are some frequent queries about downloading your voter ID card online:-
Can I print my voter id card?
The answer is no. You can only download the Voter Slip which will contain your part and serial number. The numbers will make it easier for the election officer to locate your name in the voter list during elections.
Is the Voter Slip a valid ID during elections?
Again, no. The Voter Slip will only make it easier for the election officer to locate your name on the voter list, it is not a valid proof. You need to bring a valid ID card such as a Passport or Driving Licence if you do not have the Voter ID card.
How will I receive my original Voter ID card?
It will be delivered to your doorstep by an election officer.
Can I download a soft copy of my Voter ID Card?
No, you cannot. The Voter ID Card or EPIC has a hologram in it which makes it illegible as a soft copy.
