Find your name on the voters list

With the Bengaluru council polls due this year, the State Election Commission has put up a website where you can search for your name on the electoral list, but only those who registered for the Lok Sabha polls.

As the BBMP elections are slated to be held by the end of the year, this new website, set up by Zoomin Softech Pvt Ltd, an IT solutions company, for State Election Commission (SEC), will help you search for your name on the voters list.

But this is only if you voted for the parliamentary elections earlier this year. Citizens who have registered during the past few months after the Lok Sabha polls will not find their names on this site, since these updates have not yet been published online.

The homepage of the site has both English and Kannada, with the dropdown menus in English. The ‘Search By’ icon has different options through which you can search for your name on the electoral list. Click on ‘Name’ and you will get a page where you are required to fill in your Assembly Constituency (AC) and name. Even though it isn’t starred, enter your gender to narrow down your search. Note that the ACs are not listed in numerical order.

While entering your name, type in a part of the name instead of your full name, say the first four letters or so and search.

While entering your name, type in a part of the name instead of your full name, say the first four letters or so and search. You could also enter your surname to search. Be wary of wrong spellings in the database because of which your name may not show up on the search results.

A useful feature here is, when you choose your AC, the names and telephone numbers of the Revenue Officer (RO) and the Assistant Revenue Officer (ARO) for that AC appears on the right side of the page. But contact details for some ACs like Yelahanka are blank.(The RO is also the Electoral Registration Officer and the ARO is the Assistant Electoral Registration Officer.)

The search result shows the name of voters, the new wards they belong to, their new voter roll part numbers, serial numbers, house numbers, father/husband’s name, age, gender and EPIC (electoral photo identity card) numbers if they have one. If you click on the row where your name appears, the polling station details will open in a new window.

The ‘Search By’ option also allows you to search for your name through EPIC number or Ward. The procedure is similar as mentioned above. The Voters List (PDF) option says the electoral rolls will be available shortly.

This search can also be done in Kannada, the option for which is on the right hand top corner of the page.The ‘Helpline’ option opens up a PDF file with contact details of officials for each ward. This is listed according to the AC. Dr V R Hegde, Executive Director, Zoomin Softech Pvt Ltd, says this has to be removed from the site since there is incorrect information and that he has brought it to the notice of the SEC.When you click on ‘Process Document’ a slide show appears, explaining how the delimitation process was carried out.

    Good to see SEC going online. But great difficulty is that most of our names are incorrectly spelled in their database which makes the search a painful process. Hope they will try doing something to fix that as well.

    The BBMP websites are badly designed..they are not user friendly and seems like they like to sponsor Microsoft, their websites work well only with Internet explorer. I struggled to pay my property taxes and print my receipt online using google chrome..on a vague suspicion, I changed to IE and could get in! same happened with this list too.
