The Lok Sabha elections 2019 are around the corner. In order to cast your vote, the first step is getting a voter ID card. After that, you will have to make sure that your name is enrolled in the voters’ list.
Having a valid voter ID card is not the only requirement, you need to check if your name is on the voter list and all your details are up to date. If your name appears in the voter list, you are eligible to vote, otherwise, you need to register for it.
So, if you want to check your name in the voters’ list alongside details like polling station, voting date, etc. then all of this can be searched easily online. Here’s how you can check your name and other details in the electoral data online.
The first method is the website search.

The first method here is ‘Search by Details’. You need to enter your Name, Father’s Name, Age, Gender, State, District, and Assembly Constituency.

If your name is on the voter list, your details will appear at the bottom of the page. You will be able to see more details like your polling station venue, date of your voting and more, click on ‘View Details’.
