    1. DOES IT TAKE SO MUCH TIME TO RESPOND TO A SIMPLE QUERY EVEN AFTER GIVING FULL PARTICULARS OF YOUR OWN REFERENCE? ONLY WIDESPREAD ADVT. IS GIVEN BUT AT THE GROUND LEVEL THE LETHARGY AND INDIFFERENCE CONTINUES.

  12. I have been submitting my voter id form for the past 18 years but I have still not got it feel like laughing this is all bullshit stuff.

  13. i am a registered voter of andhrapradesh 9 years back ans now i am shifted to karnataka , bangalore. i applied online for deletion in andhra pradesh. still they have not removed my name. i want to register as a voter in ward-28. kammanahalli. r.s.palya,bangalore. they want declaration that i am not a voter any where, which i can’t give. i am not able to be a voter anywhere. what i have to do.

  14. they have one form for change of address , but when you apply in this form again and again , even then
    the voter id card is not printed correctly ; anybody ib their office try to understand what the form
    meant for change of address ?????????????? actually it is not change of address ; i think change of
    address means the total address is changed i.e., if the person has shifted his residence
    from one place to another place ; they should have a separate form for CORRECTIONS IN ADDRESS ;
    giving columns ” existing address ” , and ” new address ” for corrections ; so that they can use their
    brain properly and issue fresh VOTER I D CARD . ?????????????? when approached here in their ADAYAR
    CHENNAI OPffice , they say the work foir issuance of Voter ID Cards has been to assigned to Third Party
    ( outsourced ) ; even if it so , why the outsourced people try to compare the form/s and issue
    correctly what has been requested , as requested . everywhere people are being befooled , and
    nobody seems to bother ; there should be a P R O or Grience Officer for doing rthe needful ,
    who should be able to be contacted.

    to the concerned TOP official of ELECTION COMMISSION ?????????????????????

  17. HP election Commission seems doing nothing in providing online electrol services . It is working. The concerned authorities should work for providing such an important service to the people busy in their jobs nd can’t spare time to go to BLO for registration/correction.

  18. Dear Sir,
    Lets come of 1947 system of ink marking. During Adhar card issue Govt is taking our hand/thumb scan. Lets use the same for validating a person for voting so that there won’t be any fraud or bogus voting as it happens in many remote area’s of the country where Gunda’s are ruling like in Maharashtra western line towards Gujarat. If father is MLA than where it written that son should also without doing nothing can become politician having 4 gunda’s around him.

  19. My daughter ‘s voter card is in the list of city UPLETA (Dist. Rajkot… Gujarat) We are permenantly residing at Rajkot and we wish, the voter card is transferred to Rajkot from Upleta. While contacting local authorities they insist that we have to contact authorities of Upleta, get their confirmation in writing that name has been cancelled from their list and thereafter apply for new votercard at Rajkot. Upleta is about 100 kms from Rajkot and She cannot go there due to leave problems. She is not able to vote due to this problem since last 4 years. Can all this procedure not done online? Please let me know what procedure tobe followed for transferring voter card onnline from one city to another city.
    Thanks.

  20. My name si wrongly spelt. It does have the family name in it. It has my husband’s name without initials. Voter lists also need to be updated. On my address there were 6 people listed , I saw it when I went to cast my vote for municipal elections.

    My name was not there. Obviously they are bogus voters. how do they get voter ID? Why are they listed on my address?

    I returned without casting vote
    Thanks
