Voter Id Card

Voter Id Card

Voter ID card list includes all the details of citizens who are eligible and entitled to cast vote in elections. A Voter ID Card are developed according to Assembly Constituency. Voter ID card under an Assembly Constituency is divided further into parts that correspond to the nearest polling booths. The Election Commission of India has passed a decree that not more than 1200 people are allocated per booth. The intention of this decree is that no voter may have to travel more than 2 kms for reaching a polling booth. Commonly, one part will coincide with a single polling booth.

In order to execute this franchise, the first and the most important thing that one needs to do is to include the name in the voter list. The name of the person should be registered in the appropriate part of the area where the person lives under the Assembly Constituency. Without the name in the list, no person will be allowed to execute his or her franchise. Therefore, it is not only a right to exercise vote, but a duty to enquire whether the name has been registered or not in the voter list.
