The Election Commission of India has introduced a ‘Vote-from-home’ facility for the upcoming Loksabha Elections 2024 to make the voting process more accessible. This provision allows voters aged 85 and above, and individuals with disabilities exceeding 40 per cent, to cast their votes from the comfort of their homes.

Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar announced that these citizens have the option to utilise postal ballots for voting from their residences. This initiative aims to simplify the voting process for these individuals during elections.

How to Apply for the ‘Vote-from-Home’ Facility:

  1. Download Form 1D: Voters can download Form 1D from the official website of the Election Commission at www.eci.gov.in. Alternatively, this form can be obtained from the office of the district officer representing the Loksabha constituency.
  2. Inform the Assistant Returning Officer (ARO): Voters need to inform the ARO about their inability to reach the polling station to cast their vote.
  3. Postal Ballot Voting Process: Once the form is submitted, polling officials, accompanied by a cameraman and a security guard, will visit the eligible voter’s residence to oversee the postal ballot voting process.
  4. Notification of Visit: The voter will receive a notification of the visit’s date and time via SMS or email.
