After clicking on the link, voters will find a list of rolls on the page which is sub-divided into two parts such as Main Roll and Modification.

When you click on the Part Number, it will give details of the constituency such as location, year of revision, identification. The page also gives further details like Google map location and photographs of the polling booth and a list of other registered voters.
Looking for alternate choice? Voters can also check their names in the voter list of Delhi. The two criteria that have been listed on the National Voters’ Service Portal can be searched by name and by Electors Photo Identity Card (EPIC) number.
