How to Change the Address of Your Election ID Card within the Same Constituency

Residential address is an important data in the voter ID card and electoral roll. To have election card it is necessary to seek changes in the card in case there is some discrepancies in the address printed on the card and the actual place you are living.

As the Election Commission of India (ECI) is responsible for the registration, verification, and distribution of the election card, it has put in place various forms to ensure people looking for updates or changes in the voter card or voters list can do the needful – online.

Information Required for Application

India is divided into various assembly constituencies and each constituency has its own voter’s list. There are also districts for the constituencies. Each assembly constituency is divided into polling booths that are identified by their Part Number. It is here that voters need to come over on the day of the election to exercise their franchise. While filling in the required form for changes or registration in voter card, one must know these basic details.

Need to Transpose a Card

Each state has its own Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) who works under the orders of ECI. The CEO website has links to various forms where voters can apply for changes in the card, rectification of data in the card, or change of address within the same assembly constituency or transposition of the election card.

Scenario 1:

Consider a situation where a voter residing in a particular city was allotted a polling booth that was quite far away from house. Although the polling booth was in the same assembly constituency, the voter had to trudge a long way during the elections to cast the vote.

Scenario 2:

In another situation, a voter may have changed the residence within the same assembly constituency and requires updating the voter card to help him get all the facilities that the photo Election ID card can do.

In the above two situations, voters must register online for a change in the address or polling booth by filling in Form 8A. In other words, this is known as transposition of the voter card. In case you are changing your assembly constituency, you need to apply online as a new voter – How to apply for Voter ID Card.

Should you do an Online Registration or Application of Voter ID Card?

Applying for Change of Address – Form 8A

Although Form 8 is used to change the address, you should use this form only when you want to change errors in the electoral roll, such as typos, spelling errors in address, and similar wrong data.

But, to change the Part Number or change of address entirely, you should click the link that download form 8A. Ensure you follow all the formalities prior to the download.

When form 8A is downloaded, you should:

  • Fill Part I, by specifying:
    • Part Number and Serial Number of the voter list where you are already registered.
    • Electors Photo Identity Card Number (EPIC)
    • Relation’s Name
  • Fill Part II, by specifying:
    • Address of the new place of residence
  • Fill Part IV, by specifying:
    • Part Number of the new area or polling booth where you want to exercise your franchise

You need to submit the form along with proof of address, such as a rent bill, electric bill, or telephone bill of the new place and a copy of the voter ID card.

You can either submit the credentials online by uploading a PDF file of the same or submit the hard copies to the Election Registration Officer (ERO). A Booth Level Officer (BLO) may visit your house to verify the form and ultimately, change the address and the polling booth (if necessary).
