You can contact the Booth Level Officer of the concerned booth and enquire about the reasons for the same. You can also enquire in the Election section of the Taluk Office within the limits of that Taluk.

When you apply for a voter ID card, the booth-level officers of the Election Commission visit the applicant's home to take the report or make inquiries over the phone and submit the report to the Election Commission. They might also take reports of you without your knowledge from people in your locality as well.

Now the Booth Level Officer sends a report to the Election Commission. If the report is favorable, then Election Commission approves it. After the approval, your name will come in the Voters List and an EPIC number will be allotted. You will get a message on your mobile.
