New Delhi: The month of March marked the beginning of polling race for 5 Assemblies in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Puducherry and Kerala while political parties continue to woo voters to their camps. Now, with voting ID being insufficient to cast your ballot, it is important for the voters to check their names in the electoral lists before they head out on polling day. Voters must know how to check their details before they head out to cast their votes on the D-day.
