Cadres of political parties have begun distributing voting slips door to door since the weekend. These slips carry your name, address and number on the electoral rolls and your photo too, if that has been updated. The slip helps you and the booth staff easily locate your name on the rolls on polling day – April 24, Thursday – and quicken the process.
The slip also confirms that your name in on the rolls and that you can confidently walk to the booth, sign in and cast your vote.
If you do not have a Voter ID card, then any valid ID like passport, Aaadhar card which carries your name, address and photo is sufficient.
In many booths, Corporation has also put up display boards which list the streets/roads/colonies whose residents can cast their ballot at the venue. This helps because in some areas there may be two booths on one one campus or booths close to each other.
If your slip has not been delivered it means your name is not on the list or the address is mixed up and hence the slip may be given elsewhere or dropped off. You can still walk to the cadres’ desk outside the local booth on voting day and look for your name which may be listed elsewhere.
