As India is gearing up for the Lok Sabha general elections scheduled to take place this year, it is important for the country’s citizens to check beforehand if their names are mentioned on the electoral rolls. It is because in order to cast vote in any of the elections – Lok Sabha or State Assembly polls – it's mandatory for a citizen to have an election ID card, and also his/her name mentioned on the voter list.

The electoral rolls are published by the Election Commission of India on its official website from where the Indian citizens can check whether or not their names appear on the list.

Here's a step-wise guide to help you check if your name is there on voters list.
