You will soon be able to get the spelling of your name corrected or your residential address changed on the voter's identity card, while sitting in the comfort of your home.

The Delhi election office plans to upgrade its website to allow residents to apply for new voter's identity cards and make corrections in their records without going to the respective election office in their area.

Officials said the new facility will be available in two-three months. "Currently, one can only fill up form number 6 online to get his/her name added to the voter's list," said a senior election officer.

"In two-three months, the voter will be able top fill up form numbers 7, 8 and 8A, which are required to delete the name, make corrections in their name or address and transposition of entry in electoral roll respectively," the officer added.

The only time the applicant will have to visit the election office is to get a photograph clicked. The voter will also be able to scan the necessary documents and upload them on the website.
