The election Commission says proving identity of voters is compulsory for voting at this election. The national identity card, valid passports, driving license, pensioner's identity card, identity issued for senior citizens and any other type of document issued by the department of Registration of Persons are valid at the polling booth. In case of faded or unreadable identity cards, voters should obtain a special identity card issued by the department. The election commission stresses that no voter is allowed to enter the polling booth with a proper identification.
