How can voter IDs be linked to Aadhaar cards? The following steps will help you get started
Electoral Commission officials have said that linking Aadhar cards with voter IDs will allow them to detect people who register in more than one constituency. In spite of this, the election panel has not made linking Aadhar with voter ID mandatory.
Aadhaar has been linked to voter identity cards by the Election Commission in several states. A poll panel has stated that the exercise is aimed at establishing voter identities and authenticating electoral rolls.
Aadhaar ecosystem data is being linked with electoral roll data months after the Parliament passed the Election Laws (Amendment) Bill 2021.
Using Aadhaar as a voter ID will assist in detecting voter registration in more than one constituency or more than once in the same constituency, according to the Election Commission. Live Hindustan, a sister publication of Hindustan Times, reports that the poll panel has not made linking Aadhaar with voter ID mandatory.
