VOTER ID CARD: ELECTION COMMISSION TOYS WITH IDEA OF DIGITAL VOTING CARD

The Election Commission (EC) is toying with the idea of giving voters an Voter ID card in a digital format for easy convenience, a senior official said.

He, however, made it obvious that no decision has been taken by the EC yet in this concern.

“We keep getting advice and ideas from officers on fields, by working groups of (state) chief electoral officers and public. This is one such idea we are working on,” the official said.

Asked whether the digital voter identification card would mean that a voter can take it on his or her mobile phone using an app, the official said once the EC takes a judgment, such details will be completed.

“It can be on a mobile, website, through e-mail… the purpose is to provide faster shipment and easy accessibility. The natural card takes time to print and time to transfer the voter,” he explained.

The Aadhaar card, Permanent Account Number (PAN) card, and driving license are available in digital mode.

In digital mode, the picture of the voter will also be clean, making the identification more easier.

Another senior poll panel official said to stop the misuse of technology, the EC will have to see into the safety things before making a decision.

EC’s electoral rolls are given a physical voter identity card for Suitable voters.

Launched in 1993 for the first time, the Voter ID card are allowed as proof of identity and address. PTI NAB RHL
