election cardDuty of the voter

Main duty of the voter, is to find your name in the voter's list, before the voting day. This may be done at the local ECI office OR local political party office OR call helpline 9225320011 or send SMS to Voter MCGM (Full name) Age on 56677 or online. Select your Vidhan Sabha. For eg. please select 'Wadala', if you are a Matunga or Dadar CR resident.

http://www.electionmumbaicity.org

OR

www.ceo.maharashtra.gov.in

Sometimes the above sites may be down OR there may be discrepancy in data between the 2 government sites.

You may send an SMS to 9869889966 or 7820078200 by typing EPICID SPACE YOUR ELECTION CARD ID NUMBER to know your polling booth.

On the voting day, the voter must carry the election Photo ID. If thatís not available, then the voting slip (as delivered by any political party) with any government photo ID will do.

If your name is not found in the voterís list (and you have filled up Form 6); please check a few buildings next to yours (before and after your building entry in the voterís list). Atleast 10% of the times, there are errors in the list, where your name may appear in some other section of your booth.

Each voter is identified by your MLA area (Vidhan sabha) and the EP (booth) number. Booth is the location where you go to vote and has approximately 1,000 voters each.  Each vidhan sabha may have about 225 voting booths. Within that EP file is the voter's serial number.

So a MP candidate has to cover about 1,500 booths (and hence have 1,500 booth pramukhs and atleast 1,500 polling agents and their relievers, for effective coverage). One polling station (eg a government school) may physically contain 2-3 or more booths. Each booth has a unique number called EP number. So a voter can be uniquely identified as, South Mumbai Lok sabha constituency, Malabar Hill vidhan sabha, EP number x (booth number 1 to say 240), serial number y (voter number 1 to say 1,000).

(Graduate constituency only) For addition of name (Form 18)

For MLC elections (Graduate constituency), you can enrol as a voter by filling form 18 and providing attested documents:
- An attested copy of the degree OR diploma
- Attested Photo Identity proof (Passport OR Voter card OR PAN card OR Driving License)
- Attested Proof of Address (any utility bill like telephone OR Voter ID OR Passport)

Person must be a graduate for three years and a resident of Mumbai. There is no need to register again, if you are already registered once, as a graduate voter.

The original of all the documents are also required to be produced in person while submitting the Form 18 at office of Deputy Collector & Deputy Election Officer, Office of the Mumbai District Collector, Old Custom House, Mumbai 1.
