Now you can link your Aadhaar card with Voter ID card

The Union Cabinet approved a bill on electoral reforms yesterday. With this, voters can link their Aadhaar card with their voter ID card. Earlier, the Election Commission of India (ECI) proposed to link the Aadhaar card of voters with their voter ID cards to avoid multiple enrolments in the electoral roll.

The bill also gives four turns for newly eligible voters to enrol in a year. At present, those turning 18 years on or before January 1 each year are allowed only once to register as voters. So, those who attain 18 years after January 1 will have to wait for a year, i.e. till the next year. But, now they will have four turns in a year. Hence, they can register at any time as per their eligibility.

Linking of Aadhaar card with a voter ID card is not mandatory. But, if you want to link both of them, follow the below-mentioned procedure.

Then a pop-up page appears. You have to fill in your name as mentioned in the Aadhaar card, Aadhaar number, voter ID number, registered mobile number and registered email address on that page. 

Check the details and click on the ‘Submit’ button. You will receive a message on the successful completion of your application registration. 

You can also link your Aadhaar card with your voter ID through an SMS. Send an SMS by mentioning your voter ID number and Aadhaar number to 166 or 51969.
