How to register to vote online

Now that we’ve been talking about Digital India for quite a few years, you can register yourself online. For that you’ll have to head over to National Voters’ Service Portal – nvsp.in, and then click on ‘Apply Online For Registration of New Voter’ on the homepage.



A new window with Form 16 will open. Just fill up to form with all your required details. Next, you will also need to upload your ID and address proof, and your photograph. Once all the details are filled in, simply scroll down and hit submit.

How to check if the registration is complete?

After you register to vote, you can go ahead and check of the registration is successful. To do that, head over to https://electoralsearch.in/ and enter your details, such as name, age, state, district, and more. If the registration went through properly, your name will appear in the list.



The last date to register to vote is March 25, so ensure you complete the procedure before that.

Required documents to enroll yourself

You will need two sets of documents – ID proof and address proof. If you have a passport and a driving license, it will serve both purposes. Else, you will have to present two different documents for identification and address proof. A PAN card and student identification can work as ID proof, whereas bank passbook, ration card, post office passbook, water / electricity / gas connection bill can work as address proof.
