As we know, it takes a while to visit a government office and obtain a voter identification card. To simplify this process, the government has made pre-registration accessible online.
A voter ID card provides documentation of nationality and adult franchise. To safeguard their right to vote by using this online service, the Commission is calling Nepali residents who have not yet added their names to the voter list.
The National Election Commission has developed a web-based voter list pre-registration system so that the voter list can be registered online in order to make the work of creating the voter list with photos simpler. On the 28th of Ashad 2079, the Commission chose to make it available by the 29th of Ashad 2079 in 3 districts of the Kathmandu Valley (Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur).
