I have not received Voter card even after several months of applying?

The issue we are talking about is Non-Receipt of Election or Voter Card.

It has now become a common problem with new voters who apply for a new voter card and even follow all the right process from applying to final submission, but still face a problem when it comes to receiving their card in hand. Usually a new voter card takes about 2-3 months to reach your hand after the date of application submission. But if no verification team has come to your house, you need to contact the ERO, polling station, local Tahsildar, or Zonal Officer in particular areas from where you have applied. But if the verification has been already done and it exceeds this 2-3 months’ time period, then there must be a problem as your application may either be stuck at some stage of this streamlined process or may be lost in the transit. So how do one check what happened with their application or Voter Card? The answer is provided below.

Three possibilities of your Status:

  3. Distribution in Progress.

If your status is showing Cancelled, then you have to contact your ERO or re-apply for the Voter Card. If your status shows either Under Process or Distribution in Progress then you must wait for some more time before you have your Voter Card in your hand.

    • Hi Yash,

      Please check the Voter ID status following the steps mentioned in this post. Since you name is showing up in the Voter List it means you are a registered voter and can vote in any elections with your ID proof like passport, pancard, driving licence etc. even if you don’t have your voter Id card since you are listed in the voter list.

      However do check the status of your voting card and see what it shows. You will understand why the delay has happened of the voter Id card is misplaced.
