Notably, the elections are slated to take place in seven phases on April 19 and 26, May 7, 13, 20, and 25, and June 1. Results will be out on June 4 as Prime Minister Narendra Modi attempts to return for a third term to office and the opposition tries to provide the voters with an alternative.

There are around 10.5 lakh polling stations around the country which has a whopping 96.8 crore registered voters approximately. So, here's how you can check your polling booth, where voters go to cast their votes, for the 2024 Lok Sabha election.

How to check your polling booth online?

The voters can head to the official Election Commission site (https://electoralsearch.eci.gov.in/) and fill in the details. There are three ways to find the polling booth and other details.

1. Voters can either opt to enter all details including personal information like name, age, district, and assembly constituency.

2. Alternately, you can search by entering your EPIC number.

3. Voters can also search by entering their registered mobile number and then the one time password (OTP) they receive on said number

In all these cases the captcha code has to be entered before the results are displayed.

What other information is presented?

The ECI site also provides additional information in which the voter gets to know about the polling date, details of the booth level officer (BLO), the electoral registration officer (ERO), and the district election officer (DEO). The booth name is available, which voters can then corroborate on online maps like Google Maps to find the exact location. The Assembly Constituency and Parliamentary Constituency names are also provided by the ECI.

How to get information about candidates?

Voters can download Know Your Candidate (KYC)-ECI, a mobile application to know more about the candidates contesting in the Lok Sabha elections. KYC is a user-friendly mobile app for voters to know information about candidates in their respective constituencies, their background and affidavits at the time of filing nomination papers.
Voters can also access information through the application regarding candidates, including those involved in criminal cases and the current status of those cases. This data provides voters with valuable insights into the background of candidates. The application is available for download on both Android and iOS platforms.
