About This File

Referring to the Commission instructions No.464/INST/2016EPS, dated 21.12.2016 regarding display of Voter Facilitation Posters(VFPs) at polling Stations, wherein, the Commission had allowed Photo Voter Slip as an alternative document for identification. However, there have been representations against its use as a stand-alone identification document on the grounds of misuse as these are printed after the finalizations of the roll and distributed just close to the poll through Booth Level Officers. The design of Photo Voter Slip does not incorporate any security feature.

ln view of the above facts, Commission decided and issued an instruction No'3/4/ID/2019/SDR/VOL.1, dated 28.02.2019, wherein it is stated that Photo Voter Slip shall not be accepted as a stand-alone identification document for voting and the voters are required to carry EPIC or one of the 11 alternative documents specified by the Commission for voting.

ln this connection, the Commission has directed that the Voter Facilitation Poster, comprising the list of alternative documents as specified by the Commission for voting, to be modified suitably. The Chief Electoral Officers are requested to take note of the instruction and bring them to the knowledge of all the DEOs/Ros.
