You need to find out your electoral registration officer. Generally it is SDM/ Addtl. Collector. You can check it up with your Collector/DM Office.

Are you talking of the RTI Application?

Hi Shrawan,

Thanks for replying so quickly. No, we haven't applied for the changes yet. We just wanted to know how long it might take to recieve the corrected ID card after the application is made.

In order to avoid any inconveniences, we want to make sure that she will be home to recieve the card when it arrives. If we knew how long it takes, we would be able to make arrangements for a trip we were plannning in October.

So, do you know how long it normally takes for the corrected card to arrive after the application is made?

Thanks and regards,

Subham

HI Subham,

The voter ID cards are issued, changed during the election period where Election commission places camps to do that. However, during the non-election days the same is done by the Electoral Registration Officer of your District. In the first case the process is fast, however, in second case you might need to follow up for the same. We have found people applying and then following up through the use of Right to Information has got greater success.

I would suggest the first thing you do it to apply as per the procedure.

Hi Shrawan,

I've applied as a first-time voter (form 6) online a few days ago, unsurprisingly the application is "pending / under process" so far. CEODelhi allow the applicants to upload photo and all documents online as well, so all I need is to wait for the BLO to visit for verification and signature.

When do you think would be the appropriate time to follow up through RTI to know about the status of my application? A month?

Hi Sethi ji,

The Delhi CEO website is pretty exaustive and if you have selected the correct Voters’ Registration and EPIC Centre (VREC), I would suggest your find out the Booth Level Officer (BLO), as the website here contains the mobile number of the BLO too. Talk to him/her and see what's the course of action they have. Let me know how it goes.

I'll wait for a week or two before I contact the Election Registration Officer or Booth Level Officer. If I don't get satisfactory answer by then, I'll just file a RTI. I believe 2-3 weeks (from the application submission date) is a reasonable time for them to at least process OR have reason for not processing my voter application.

I'll let you know how this goes through.

BTW, just a observation; While I was checking the status of random application id on CEODelhi, I found that some applicants got their card issued in less than three weeks while others remain under process for months. Peculiar, ain't it?

The corrections can be made any time, the only difference is the place where you need to approach. During non election time you need to approach Electoral Registration Officer
