how to get/search name in the electoral roll

Without a voters’ list or an electoral roll, almost anyone would be able to enter the polling station to cast a vote. This would lead to an uncountable number of dubious and bogus votes. Such an Election would be everything but ‘Free and Fair’. Any leader or party having money or muscle power would be able to pivot the results into its own favor and honest parties/candidates would not even stand a chance to serve the Citizens.

Therefore, it is really important that you take advantage of the Indian Electoral Roll by registering your name in it and hence become a part of the Democratic practice of a ‘Free and Fair Election’. Your contribution to the Democracy starts from the time when you are registered as a voter and have your name in the Electoral Roll of your constituency. Once you are a registered voter whose name in presented in the prestigious voters’ list and have your voter id card to back that entry, you become an active part of the Democracy. Nevertheless, merely having your name in the electoral roll but not casting your vote on the Election day, is not going to help anyone. So there are 3 basic steps to becoming a dutiful and responsible adult Citizen of India;

  1. Register your name in the electoral roll of your constituency.
  2. Get your voter id card issued by the Election Commission of India.
  3. Go out to cast your vote on the Election day and make your opinion count.
