The same was the case in the recent Maharashtra and Haryana assembly elections. In these states, the CEO released a list of documents that could be used as alternatives to the voter id cards. These documents could be anything official like a driving licence, govt. sector issued identity cards, govt. sector issued insurance documents, ration cards or properly authenticated voter slips. You can access the list issued for Mahrashtra by clicking here. Although a similar list is yet to be officially released by CEO Jharkhand but you can stay assured that the list would be identical to the one issued by CEO Maharashtra and CEO Haryana. Hence if any of the voters have lost their voter id card or damaged them, they can still get a chance to exercise their franchise to vote by presenting one of the listed alternate documents to the polling officer at the polling station.
