Voters need to have their names listed in the voter list so that they can cast the votes during the elections. Very often, people who had had their names listed in the voter list found that the names were missing when they went to the polling booth on the election day, that means that even after having a valid voter ID card, they were not able to vote on election day for their candidate. They go back to the homes without exercising their franchise during the elections.
Such situations, like not being able to vote on election day can be avoided only if you search for your name in voter list online with just a few clicks of your computer mouse. Most of the voter list search operations are web-enabled, so it is considerably easier for the Election Commission of India (ECI) to manage the elections in India with ease and address those issues regarding voter card registration and related others.
