Answered on February 13,2019

You are a Service Voter if You are

  • in the Armed Forces of India
  • from Assam Rifles, CRPF, BSF, ITBF; GREF in Border Road Organisation; Central Industrial Security Force
  • employed under the Government of India, in a post outside India
  • member of an Armed Police Force of a State, and serving outside that state

Wife of a Service Voter, if she is ordinarily residing with him, shall also be eligible to be enrolled in the part meant for Service Voters in the constituency concerned. This facility is not available to the husband of a female service voter under the existing law.

Points to remember

  • While wife can be enrolled as Service Voter, a son / daughter cannot be enrolled as Service Voter
  • No person can be enrolled on more than one electoral roll i.e. when you enrol as a service voter you have to submit a declaration - that you did not get enrolled as a general elector
