As all Mumbaikars are now set for the Lok Sabha Elections happening here in Mumbai tomorrow – Thursday, April 30, 2009 here’s a final word that we need to check before visiting the polling booth.
Consider accompanying your friends and family members at the polling booth.
Check your voter registration status by:-
- Checking a copy of the final voter list at your Electoral Registration Officer’s (ERO) office. Locate here
- The website of the Chief Electoral Officer i.e. www.ceomaharashtra.nic.in points you to this On line Search URL http://220.127.116.11/ where you just need to enter your name and assembly location.
- You can also search your name on the voter list available at your polling booth. But is advisable to have it checked in advance.
Find your Polling booth
- You will find your polling booth address on the voter list in the section where you find your name registered as a voter.
- You can even check with your neighbors since most people in an area normally belong to the same polling booth.
Voter registration forms with sufficient address/id proofs and correct entries would have been duly processed to be included in the voter list at the discretion of the ERO.
In case you don’t have a voter ID card, you can use any of the other approved ID cards.
