  1. I want to know, will ID card work in place of VPIC card for NC election 2018?

  2. Please check my postal ballot registration. My ID number is 10310000387.

  3. Congratulation ECB for successfully completing the 2016 LG Election. I’m proud to be in the Team fulfilling my duty as an Assistant Chief Election Coordinator.

  4. How we will know our poster ballot is submitted?

  5. Election of local government heads in Bhutan went smoothly. Great example to other great and old democracies in the world. However some illiterate and some old people could not exercise their franchise because of the differences in the voter cards as reported by BBS. If voter cards can be made just like the driving license or ID card I think this confusion can be avoided. The difference in one vote is all that counts.

  6. I am not registered says the dialog box. How can I register as I am unable to open the Registration form?

  7. I am already registered in postal ballot and I have sent the application form also. Now how do I know that I am eligible to vote?
