The Election Commission has decided to change this Epic to bring compliance with EPIC across the country. The initial work on Karnataka has begun. Sanjeev Kumar, chief election officer of the state, said, “All citizens of the state who have paid in 5 years and have applied for new card will get voter card by January 20.” This EPIC made of plastic will have multi-layers.

Not the end here. The Election Commission is also planning to add all voter information with a bar-coded voter card. Next time only the bar code reader will have all the voter’s information in hand.

This is what Sanjeev Kumar, the chief election officer of the state, said. He added that those who now have old white and black voter cards can apply for the card if they want. The new card will be available in less than 5 days. However, the field can be especially time consuming.
