Photo voter slip no longer a standalone ID document during polls: EC
By migrator | Sat, 2 Mar 2019
NEW DELHI, March 2, 2019: The Election Commission on Thursday said a photo voter slip shall no longer be used as a standalone identification document during elections, and a voter will have to carry any of the twelve approved identity cards to the polling station.
The EC order said the decision has been taken after representations were made to it against the use of these slips as they do not have any security feature. They are printed after the finalisation of the roll and distributed just close to the poll through booth level officers (BLOs).
