Apply online for a duplicate voter id card within the electoral district India – Chief Electoral Officials



In a nation like India, where determining one’s citizenship
is generally via a VOTER ID CARD, it can get extremely difficult upon losing
this invaluable treasure! This powerful ID card is not only meant for allowing
a prospective voter to exercise his or her fundamental right of casting a vote
but also registers an adult citizen in our nation. In addition to voting, this
ID card accounts for validity and makes for a solid identity proof. Perhaps now
it makes sense what plight will a person be in, if he or she happens to lose
the card.

The Chief Election Commission officers and the respective
distributed booth level heads issue this card to voters only after the
application procedure is completed and has been verified. Now if this card is
lost somehow, the incapability to vote in elections is obvious, but what adds
to the hassle is getting a duplicate of the same to ‘exercise the franchise’.
If you know of someone who has had the misfortune of going through this phase
or you have battled through this crisis, there are certain things that need to
be done. Receiving the duplicate copy is only possible after you submit the
insurance form of the respective duplicate VOTER ID CARD from the office of the
election commission that is in close proximity from your place. Alternatively,
you can download the form online from the website itself, a measure adopted by
most people these days.

Detailed Process of
Voter ID Card


VOTER ID CARDNeedless to say, the loss of a voter ID card occurs during traveling
or thefts, though the former accounts for the most part. However, it won’t be
incorrect to say that misplacing VOTER ID CARDS is uncommon. Also, some people
are so careless towards these crucial documents that accidental damages may
cause them to apply for a new one. Thanks to the present system, a solution to
this problem won’t take long. Upon finding that one has lost the card, applying
for a duplicate is the first thing to do. In addition to that, few other steps
must be taken to complete the process of getting the voter ID card’s duplicate:
  • Always make an
    FIR after the loss
  • For
    proceedings that can occur later, the FIR copy must be kept safe and secure
  • Collect Form
    002 for issuance of voter ID card’s duplicate
  • Take care to
    see that the form is filled up in every section that is required
  • Attach the FIR
    copy along with the form
  • You can also
    attach any other relevant document photocopy or even carry it, certifying your
    identity proof (passport, driving license and the like)

Now when you are done by enclosing the documents, visit your
regional chief election commission office and submit the file. You will get a
receipt in return. If you visit online, checking the status of your duplicate
Voter ID card and finding the expected time of the actual voter ID card’s
delivery will be a cakewalk. So make haste in completing the task.

Another easy process is checking out the site. Log on to the
election commission website and fill up Form 002 with the correct details after
downloading. Now attach the FIR and identification proofs or other mandatory
documents and simply submit to the local election registration office. 
Be wary
of seeing that all such vital papers are attached and submitted only to the
office of the election commission, failing which may result in not getting the
duplicate voter ID card. NRIs are not barred from receiving the same, so why
should proper citizens who care to submit everything correctly?
