Applicant willing to submit the documents online can visit ECI official website and scan the documents and image.

Those willing to correct or change some of the details in their existing voter ID card will have to fill and submit Form-8. Applicants will receive an acknowledgement number after they submit all the relevant documents.

The electoral officer or booth level officer will visit the address of the applicant mentioned by him/her in his/her form. During the visit, the officer will talk to the neighbours of the applicant to verify the address and also match all the other details mentioned by him/her in his/her application form.

If the details mentioned by the applicant in his/her application form do not match, then the application for voter ID card will be cancelled by the visiting officer. In this case, the applicant will have to again fill the form with all relevant and correct documents in the same manner.

If the details match and satisfy the officer, then the verification will be complete and the applicant will receive his/her voter ID card in 2 to 3 weeks.
