    I am from assam and I have lost my voter id card in delhi so can I submit 002 form along with fIR in delhi or or do I need to submit in assam?

    • Support Team

      Hello ,

      You need to submit in Assam Only. Since your constituency is Assam. Delhi Constituency will won’t accept! Try it once, if they accept that’s fine! But, we recommended applying in Assam only.

    Thanks for your article,
    Please clear my doubt on the following points,
    I lost my VoterId and reg FIR also I have my scanned copy of the voter Id.
    My doubts are as follow.
    1. My address as per the voter Id is Mumbai, for Job purpose I am living in Pune (both the cities are in same state maharashtra), Can I apply my card from the Pune location or I have to visit Mumbai location only.

    2. How I will get my card …?? Will they send to my home or I have to pick it up from the its respective office as I prefer to visit the office.

    • Support Team

      Hello Rk Hirapara,

      Thank you for your appreciation.

      1) Even though you were living in the same state, when it comes to constituency it changes. We are highly recommended you to visit Mumbai and apply from your constituency.
      2) The card was usually delivered via courier( mostly in developed cities ), Or they will inform to your mobile number in order to collect the card from nearby election commission office.

    Sir I lost my voter id card..
    I have Xerox with me..But the pblm here is I have applied for passport ….. What should I do now???

    • Voter ID Team

      Hello sameena,

      what is the relation between voter id card with passport ?
      Okay ! Let’s assume that ” Voter ID Card ” is used for an identical purpose,
      or Address purpose! The ” ONE ” of the following documents are must !

      1) Aadhaar card ( must and mandatory ).
      2) If you were student ( student ID Card ).
      3) Proof of Date of Birth certificate.
      4) Refeer this link for more information : Passport checklist

      NOTE : Voter identity document is not mandatory for passport ! Xerox is more than enough !
