Election Commission to launch digital e-EPIC today
The Election Commission of India will launch today (January 25) the e-EPIC (Electronic Electoral Photo Identity Card) programme during the National Voters' Day celebrations. This programme will help people to cast their vote with the help of their mobile phones.
E-EPIC is a non-editable secure portable document format (PDF) version of the EPIC and it will have a secured QR code with image and demographics like serial number, part number, etc.
E-EPIC can be downloaded on a mobile or a computer and can be digitally stored. The programme will be launched in two phases.
In the first phase (January 25-31), all new voters who have applied for the voter-ID card and registered their mobile numbers in Form-6 will be able to download the e-EPIC by simply authenticating their mobile number.
In the second phase (February 1 onwards), the general voters who have given their mobile numbers (linked one) during the registration of voter-ID can also download their e-EPIC.
E-EPIC can be downloaded through the following online links, however, the voter-ID card would also be sent to them: Voter Helpline Mobile app (Android/iOS) https://voterportal.eci.gov.in/ https://nvsp.in/.
