The general elections approaching, a key aspect for voters is knowing the constituency where their vote is registered. This information is tied to the address recorded on their Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC). To streamline this process, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has introduced a user-friendly text message service.
Here’s a detailed guide on how to find out your registered constituency:
- Send a Text Message: Utilize your mobile phone to send a text message that includes your National Identity Card (NIC) number to 8300. It is important to ensure that there are no spaces or dashes in the NIC number.
- Check Mobile Credit: Verify that your mobile phone has sufficient credit to send the text message.
- Receive Information: Once the CNIC number is sent, the response will include details such as the name of your electoral area, block code, and serial number.
This text message service offers a swift and convenient method for voters to ascertain their constituency. This knowledge proves valuable when casting votes on February 8, eliminating the need to search for this information on the day of the elections.
For those who prefer an alternative approach, registered voters also have the option to visit their respective District Election Commissioner’s office. Here, the final electoral roll is available, allowing individuals to check and confirm their particulars. This ensures that voters have the necessary information well in advance, contributing to a smoother and more efficient electoral process.
