People of Tripura can apply for the Voter ID card at any time as the Election Commission has changed the procedure to make it easy and simple and a continuous process. An Indian Citizen who has attained the age of 18 years can vote in local and national elections. The part and the region number mentioned in the Voter Card determine the constituency of the applicant. The Voter Card is considered as the proof of nationality and citizenship. Here is the step by step guide for the application of the Voter ID card in Tripura.
For the online application, the applicant must visit the website of the Chief Electoral Officer of Tripura, ceotripura.nic.in for the online registration and activation of the account.
Once registration and the activation is completed, the applicant has to fill the form for application of the fresh voter id card. The applicant has to fill the Form No 6 and should be very aware of the information filled. Any wrong information filled in the form may lead to cancellation of the application.
The information filled has to be supported by the documents provided by the government. For voter card registration and application, the Election Commission asks for the proof of birth, proof of address and the proof of identity. Aadhar Card can be very well used for the registration purpose. However, the applicant can also provide ranges of other documents in support of the birth, address and identity. The list of the documents is available on the website and can be verified with the documents of the applicants.
The form should be submitted after the documents are successfully uploaded. This will generate the reference number for the applicant. The same number can be used in the website to check the status of the application online.
It takes around one month of time for the Election Commission to prepare the Voter ID Card. Once completed it is sent to the applicant to the registered address via post.
The nearest electoral office or branch must be located and should be visited by the applicant personally.
