After you submit the Voter ID application form along with the documents such as Address and Identity proof,a Booth Level Officer (BLO) is assigned to verify your details. Booth Level Officer (BLO) is a Government/Semi Government/PSU/Local body Official, familiar with the local electors and is residing in the same polling area. The BLO is a representative of Election Commission of India at the polling station area level. He /She plays a pivotal role in maintaining an error-free and updated electoral roll by collecting actual field information of the polling area.

BLO will come to your residence and verify relevant details. BLO also verifies details by talking to your neighbours and other members of the society/neighbourhood as well.

In case, the details do not match, then the application will be cancelled.If details are to the satisfaction of the Booth Level Officer then the verification will be complete and applicants will receive their Voter ID by post after around 2 to 3 weeks.
