Voter Registration Process

Voter Registration Process

Registering as a voter in India is a straightforward process that can be done online through the National Voter Service Portal (NVSP) or offline by submitting physical forms. Here’s a step-by-step guide for the online registration process:

Online Voter Registration Process:

  1. Visit NVSP Portal: Go to the National Voter Service Portal (NVSP) website at https://www.nvsp.in/.
  2. Create an Account: If you’re a new user, you’ll need to create an account. Click on “Login/Register” and then on “Don’t have account, Register as a new user”. Follow the prompts to create your account.
  3. Form 6 Submission: Once logged in, look for “Apply online for registration of new voter/due to shifting from AC” or a similar option, which is essentially Form 6. This form is for first-time voters or voters who have moved to a different constituency.
  4. Fill in the Details: Carefully fill in all the required details in Form 6. This includes your personal details, current address, and details of any family members already included in the electoral roll.
  5. Upload Documents: You will need to upload scanned copies of the necessary documents. This typically includes a photograph, proof of identity, and proof of address. Acceptable documents for proof of identity and address include an Aadhaar card, passport, driving license, utility bills, bank/kisan/post office current passbook, income tax assessment order, rent agreement, water bill, etc.
  6. Submit the Form: After reviewing all the information and ensuring its accuracy, submit the form online.
  7. Acknowledgment and Tracking: Upon submission, you’ll receive an acknowledgment receipt with a reference number. You can use this reference number to track the status of your application on the NVSP portal.

Offline Voter Registration Process:

  1. Obtain Form 6: Form 6 can also be obtained in person from the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) of your constituency, Booth Level Officers (BLO), or can be downloaded from the Election Commission of India (ECI) or NVSP websites.
  2. Fill the Form: Complete Form 6 with the required details, including your name, age, address, and details of family members already enrolled as voters.
  3. Attach Documents: Attach photocopies of the necessary documents for proof of identity, age, and residence.
  4. Submit the Form: Submit the completed form and documents to the nearest Electoral Registration Office. You can also hand it over to the Booth Level Officer (BLO) of your area.

After submitting your application, it will be processed, and verification might be carried out by the electoral officers. Once your application is approved, your name will be included in the electoral roll, and you will receive your Voter ID card either by post or you can collect it from the local electoral office, depending on the local practices.

Remember to check the specific requirements and available facilities in your state or union territory, as there might be slight variations in the process or the documents accepted.
