The recent endeavor by the Central Government of linking Voter ID to Aadhar Card has now established a transparent and secure mechanism. The Election Officer of Udaipur district, Tarachand Meena (District Collector) initiated this scheme in Udaipur on 1 August, 2022.
On Monday, 22 August, 2022, a press conference was held at Udaipur in which the city’s Election Officer and ADM Om Prakash Bunker made people aware about a new online app “Voter Helpline”, from which the Adhaar card number and Voter ID number can be linked easily from the mobile. He guided the Booth Level Officers, journalists and other participants on linking their numbers. Anyone who does not know their Voter ID number can search in this app by adding their names.
