With the voting underway, we thought we could go through the voting process for the first-timers and freshen it up for those who have “been-there-done-that”.
Here are the steps.
The first and foremost thing is your name in elector list. If your name is on the elector list or Electoral Roll, you can vote. Any voter who wants to get additional information regarding polling booths, contesting candidates, election dates & timings, identity cards and EVM, can see them here.
Done with checking all the information, now ready to vote?
Let’s get down to it.
1. The polling official will check your name on the list and will ask you to show your ID proof.
2. For your ID proof, you can take the following documents:
A Voter Card
C Driving License
D Service Identity Cards with photograph issued to an employee by Central/State Govt./PSUs/Public Limited Companies
E Passbooks issued by Bank/Post Office
F PAN Card
G Smart Card issued by RGI under NPR
H MNREGA Job Card (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee)
I Health Insurance Smart Card issued under the scheme of Ministry of Labour
J Pension document with a photograph
K Official identity cards issued to MPs/MLAs/MLCs
L Aadhaar Card
3. After checking your ID proof, the second polling official will ink your finger, give you a slip and take your signature next to your name on a register (Form 17A).
4. The third polling official will ask you to deposit the slip and show your inked finger. You can now proceed to the polling booth.
5. Cast your vote by pressing the ballot button opposite the symbol of the candidate of your choice on the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM): The moment you press the button, you’ll hear a beep sound.
6. Look for the slip that appears in the transparent window of the VVPAT machine. The slip shows the Candidate serial No., Name and Symbol will be visible for 7 seconds before it drops in the sealed VVPAT box.
7. NOTA (None of the Above) option is also available. It’s the last button on the EVM and you can press this if you don’t like any candidate.
8. If you have any other queries or want more information, you can see the Voter Guide on http://ecisveep.nic.in/
9. No mobile phones, cameras or any other digital appliance is allowed within a booth.
10. No one can proxy vote in your place.
