      There will be a voter verification when someone from your area’s electoral office will come to verify the details you may have submitted in your application. After that it usually takes a month or so for the voter ID card to arrive. Now since this process doesn’t involve anything to be done by the applicant, that is why nothing is mentioned anywhere. After you submit the application, the election officials will take care of proceedings.
