Apply for Voters ID Card Online



:: Apply for Voters ID Card Online ::

We all know the importance of Voters ID and its usage. But when it comes to applying for the new voters ID or making corrections / additions to the existing the cards, we are still hesitant to go to the booths  to get it done. Over the years, it has been like this. We need to go to the specified booths in our area, they will take our snap and verify the other details. But since we are little hesitant to go to the booths because of the crowds and other reasons, the officials have come up with the online mode. Yes, now we can apply for the Voters ID online. Either it is for fresh application or for the modifications in the existing cards like address change etc., we can do it online... I will post the step by step details on how to apply online below. 

Pre-Requisites : 

Before proceeding to the online form, we should keep the following things ready with us.

  • For Fresh Application : Your Photograph (Less than 350 KB), 
  • For Modifications : Your Voters ID Number (Which was at the top of the ID Card above your photo) and Your Photo if you want to change the existing photo in your ID card.
Step 1 : 

Click here to apply for voters ID online. A page like this will open.



Step 2 :

It shows four options .

1. Form 6 : For Inclusion of Name (Fresh Application)
2. Form 7 : For objection to inclusion of name (Deletion of Name)
3. Form 8 : For Corrections in the existing card (Modifications)
4. Form 8A: For transposition of entry in the electoral roll (For the transpositional errors made in the card earlier)

Select the appropriate form and proceed. Form 6 & 8 were popular since they are for fresh application & modifications respectively.

Step 3 : 

For Fresh Applications (Form 6) : 



  • A window like above will open.
  •  Fill in the necessary details.
  •  I personally feel that the details in Tamil shouldn't be made mandatory since most of us don't know how to type the texts in Tamil. This site itself tells that they have provided for transliteration whereby we can type the text in English and it will transliterate into tamil, but unfortunately it is not working when I tried. Anyways, I found an alternative.
  • Click here to go the transliteration site. 
  • Type the Tamil text in English. For Eg: for ABC Street, Type as ABC Theru it will provide the output in Tamil font. Just copy it and paste it in the require field. 
  • Upload your photo which should be less than 350 KB
  • Then comes the tricky part, where we are asked to enter details about the ID of our family members (If they have one). We know the Name, the relationship and Photo Identity Number (Which is nothing but the Voters ID Number). But how to find the Part Number & Serial number ? Here is the solution. 
           How to find Part & Serial Number : 
          1.Click here  to get the details about the Voters ID of your family members.
          2.Enter the ID number in the box provided (ID number is at the top of your Voters ID Card)
          3.After entering the ID, we will get the complete details, and there we can find the Part &                Serial number. 
  • Type that numbers in the respective fields in our application form. 
  • Then click on Submit
  • A mail will be sent to your mail ID which you provided in the application form with the link to confirm / modify / delete your application.
For Corrections in existing Voters ID (Form 8) : 

  • Click on form 8 at the entrance page.
  • Then type your ID number which was found at the top of your Voters ID card (Above your photo)
  • Update the necessary details. If you want to update the new address, type the new address in the address part.
  •  I personally feel that the details in Tamil shouldn't be made mandatory since most of us don't know how to type the texts in Tamil. This site itself tells that they have provided for transliteration whereby we can type the text in English and it will transliterate into tamil, but unfortunately it is not working when I tried. Anyways, I found an alternative.
  •  Click here to go the transliteration site. 
  • Type the Tamil text in English. For Eg: for ABC Street, Type as ABC Theru it will provide the output in Tamil font. Just copy it and paste it in the require field. 
  • Photo should be uploaded ONLY IF you want to change your photo in the existing ID . Else, leave it blank.
  • Then click on Submit
  • A mail will be sent to your mail ID which you provided in the application form with the link to confirm / modify / delete your application.

Step 4 : 

  • Once you received the mail, click on the confirmation link. Only after you click on that link, the data will be sent to the official database. 
  • The officials will be coming to your doorstep to verify the correctness of the data provided in the application form. So please be ready with the necessary ID & Address proof to provide the authorities when they come to your house. 
  • Thats it !!!!!!!!

Why this post ?? 



I just read this article in Deccan Chronicle and it is a good effort by the EC which has not reached the ears of many people. I must tell , its the good initiative and they have also trained few licensed internet cafe people to help the residents of their locality. A good move and it just takes few minutes to fill in the necessary details. 

Conclusion : 

It is the good initiative by the election commission and request you all to make a good use of it. No more "Q"s... Please spare few minutes to apply for the voters ID and be a responsible citizen. As like my previous posts on Aadhar card, not many people are aware about this.Request you all to please share and spread the awareness. For any doubts / clarifications, call 1950.

With Cheers,
Deepak Raghuraman

  2. Good information.

    Some people use the Voter ID card for all purposes, except voting.

    If some people are lazy to walk\go to nearby booth to get the card, how will they go to cast their votes ? Oh that's why parties in the election time use their vehicles !!

  13. Hi Ramesh,

    Your name has already deleted and you want to add it back right ? Then you need to fill form 8 (Fresh Appln) where you are asked to enter your previous card's details. Form 7 is for deletion of your name / cancellation of the present card.

  14. Dear Anbarasu,

    Would love to the status of your verification { so I can put an estimation on the completion of my inquiry }. I was only able to submit the Form 6 online on 11th March! The status says - Pending Inquiry. I am not always available at home; hence, I worry that I may miss the verification personnel when they { if at all } come. Is yours complete? Did you get your Voter ID yet?
