The first document that comes to mind whenever one thinks of a new registration or a new Voter ID Card is the Form No. 6. This is perhaps the most important form for the whole voting and electoral process. This form is similar to a foundation stone which builds voters out of the normal citizens and hence constructs the whole structure for the democracy.
Since your beloved better half has left behind her old home to lead a life at your place and surroundings out of her own comfort zone, you must ensure that she is registered as a voter at the new address which would enable her to take a decision and cast a vote during elections to choose officials who would govern her new constituency of residence.
Things could be difficult for the newly wedded bride as she has to adjust to completely new surroundings. So, if she is registered as a voter and has her name in the Voters’ List for the new address, this move might give her a sense of belonging and help her feel at home.
