The right to vote is the heart of every democracy. The true power lies with the people of every democracy who ultimately decide the destiny of the country by choosing the representatives who run the Government. India is one of the largest democratic countries in the world in terms of number of voters. In a country so populous, different states have varied concerns and ideas.
Hence, voting becomes a medium of expression for people. Given the number of elections that comes and goes by in India and also the rising population, one cannot deny the fact that there have been a few instances of malpractices like vote rigging. To make the process of voting smooth and to ensure that every eligible citizen gets a chance to vote, the Government of India came up with the Voter ID cards in 1993. Now, Voter ID cards have been shaped to EPIC – Electoral Photo Identity Cards.
Applying for a new EPIC in Gujarat can be done online. Also, the Chief Electoral Officer of Gujarat has a dedicated website that allows voters to apply for a change of information on the Voter ID and to delete their names from the electoral list.
