Voter ID Card Chhattisgarh

A voter ID card is an essential document in a democracy as it provides the citizen with the right to elect his/her representative. A vote ID card allows citizens to actively participate in the democratic process by electing individuals to represent them in public office.

The electoral process being the backbone of a democracy, voting plays a key role in ensuring that governments are elected in a fair manner and by popular vote, with every citizen receiving equal representation.

The Constitution of India has made provision for the establishment of a body called the Election Commission of India, which conducts elections and also registers voters and monitors the election process. This helps prevent the possibility of electoral malpractices taking place.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) monitors elections at the national, state, regional and local self-government levels.

Each state also has its own Election Commission to assist the ECI in its duties and responsibilities, with the state Election Commissions managing the duties for their respective state/union territory.

Besides conducting elections, the Election Commission also issues electoral voter cards to eligible citizens, through which they are permitted to vote in elections. At present, the ECI issues coloured voter ID cards, called EPIC (Electoral Photo Identity Card) to eligible voters.
