Kerala Assembly Elections 2021: Here's how you can download your digital voter ID card

Kerala Assembly elections will be held in a single phase on April 6 and the counting of votes will be done on May 2. For almost four decades now, Kerala has voted the Left Democratic Front (LDF) and United Democratic Front (UDF) to power alternately.

This year the LDF is looking to retain power and the UDF is hoping to make a comeback. While the BJP-led National Democratic Front is also hoping to further improve their vote tally in the changed political scenario.

While people are eager to vote for their favourite candidate, however, one will need to get his/her voter ID card before they head towards the polling booth to cast their vote.

How to download digital voter ID cards:

1. Log on to https://voterportal.eci.gov.in/, or https://nvsp.in/Account/Login

For the uninitiated, the Election Commission of India (ECI) had launched the e-EPIC programme on January 25, which is the National Voter’s Day. The e-EPIC is a secure portable document format (PDF) version of the EPIC which can be downloaded on mobile or in a self-printable form on the computer. It helps voters to store the card on their mobile phones, upload it as a PDF on DigiLocker or print it and self-laminate it.
