How to Get New Voter ID Card in Delhi?

Years back, elections were held in India without a voter identity card. However, ever since the amendment of the R.P. Act, the Election Commission of India (ECI) issued a photo-identity card to all the valid voters in the country.

New voters are formed each year as youngsters turn 18 years and become eligible to vote. If you are one from the group, you need to get your name registered in the voter’s list and acquire a valid voter’s ID card before you can think of casting your vote for your preferred representative to the Parliament.

Let us check how to apply for a new electoral card in Delhi if you’ve attained 18 years of age or have recently shifted to the capital city and require updating your voter card.

Why Require a Voter Card

A voter must have a voter card to cast vote in India. An Indian citizen, who has been residing in the country and has attained adulthood, can be eligible to get a voter card. Remember however, that getting your name listed in the voter list is also a must. But, this enrollment would not be enough. When you exercise your franchise, you must have an electoral card as well.

Apart from voting rights, a voter ID card would allow a voter to book e-tickets for railways, reserve a hotel room, or avail other services offered by the government to citizens of India only. Voters ID serve as a photo identity card that can be a proof of age, identity, and place of residence.

Applying for Voter ID Card Online

Although you may be out-of-Delhi on a tour, you can still apply for your electoral card with just a few clicks in the computer. The ECI manages and organizes elections in our country where the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) issues orders to various workers in ECI. Each state for instance, has a State Election Commissions (SEC), Election Registration Office (ERO) and a dedicated website where various forms are available.

To apply for voter card online, you need to:

How to get Voter ID Card in Delhi and introduce your name in Voters List

  • Visit the SEC website, which should be http://ceodelhi.gov.in/OnlineErms/login.aspx as you want to apply for your ID card in Delhi.
  • Sign Up if you are a new user. A new Login and Password would be generated.
  • Access the website again with the new Login and Password. An e-Registration Menu Item page is displayed.
  • Click on the link that specifies new voter. Form 6 will be displayed.
  • Download form 6.
  • Fill in the form specifying each detail correctly.  Specify your Assembly constituency in the form for instance. If you don’t know your constituency, select the required link to know the same.
  • Upload a passport size photograph in the correct slot.
  • Upload documents in the slot asked. If you have soft copies of the documents, it should be simple. If not, you need to submit your credentials to the nearest Booth Level Officer (BLO) in Delhi.
  • Click the Submit button once you have completely filled up the form

The form must be submitted with valid credentials, such as a proof of residence, identity proof, and age proof – in case, the applicant is aged between 18 and 21 years.

Visiting VREC to Get Voter Card

Many applicants submit the form as well as the documents online. However, in case you are not able to upload the documents online, you can send it by post to the Voters’ Registration and EPIC Centre (VREC) of your assembly constituency. Remember, Delhi has 70 assembly constituencies under it. Each constituency would have its own VREC.

So, apply online, visit VREC, or submit the form to your nearest BLO to get your Voter ID in Delhi.

    i had applied for a new card on 15/03/2013 recd. by your office on 10/04/2013, as i am now 18 years old, in spite of my father visiting your office near Karkardoma courts, east delhi many times he could not get the card. Today he was told that in spite of the fact that my card was ready it could not be given to him even though he went there to collect along with my adhar card and his voter ID card & adhar card. why is this and why should i and my father be harassed like this, why have i not been called with time and date so that i could appear if it is so required.

    I want to know that i have applied online for voter id card in south-west delhi, but after searching the reviews i got the negative response means BLO Booth Level Officers they come after 5 or 6 months later, then they take required documents from a candidate. Thereafter, they also take more month… what is the law of making voter-card id. I don’t know what’s the process but whatever i heard and saw the reviews of candidate’s I feel personally I was wrong to apply online for voter-id card… So, here I want to know that can i apply again for voter id card even i have already applied, because I am not sure The BLO Booth Level Officers will come or not….and If they come so they will send my voter id card on time or not?
    so I am confused about this….and I need voter id card immediately….so anyone can reply me regarding this question should I apply again or not?
