The Delhi assembly election will take place on February 8. With just a month left for the election, it might be a good time to check whether you can actually vote or not. If you have shifted to Delhi from another state due to work or education then you can apply for a change of address on your voter ID, provided you have valid documents. This will enable you to vote in Delhi. However, do check the final electoral list to see whether your name has been included or not. The entire process can be done online via the NVSP website.
1. Go to ‘National Voters’ Service Portal’ website at www.nvsp.in and click on ‘Forms’.
2. Register and create a login ID on NVSP website.
To create a login ID, click on “Don’t have an account. Register as a new user.” You would need a mobile number for OTP verification.
3. You will need your current Voter ID card or EPIC number to request for an address change.
Enter your mobile number and captcha to get the OTP. Once the OTP is verified, enter the EPIC number that is there on your Voter ID card.
