If you are an existing voter with valid voter card or you are going to be eligible to vote in Lok Sabha General Elections 2019 then linking your Aadhaar Card Number with your Voter card or EPIC number (Elector's Photo Identity Card) is of utmost importance as there is every likelihood that voters whose EPIC Number is not linked to Aadhaar Card may not be allowed to cast their votes to check forged and duplicate votes. Now the Government of India has enabled the linking process from the ease of your home by following the 5 easy to follow steps online:
  1. Just open the National Voters Service Portal
  2. Search for your name in voters list by clicking the "search your name in electoral rolls" by filling your name, relation's name, age, date of birth, gender, state, constituency etc.
  3. If your name is already existing in the Voters List then your name and EPIC Number will be displayed. You can search your name by EPIC Number also. 
  4. There is every likelihood that duplicate entries or more entries may get displayed in search results. 
  5. There will a link to feed your Aadhaar Number with valid EPIC Number. Inform your Election Office regarding the duplicate or more EPIC Numbers.
  6. Feed your Aadhaar Number and Name as available in Aadhaar ID.
