The Election Commission had already released the schedule and there are only a few days left to register oneself as a voter. The last date for filing of nominations for candidates is March 25 and the EC said registration of voters should be completed by March 15, 2019.
 
AP Chief electoral Officer Gopalakrishna Dwivedi said that those wishing to get registered as voters should fill Form 6 and submit it either at the tahsildar’s office or online.

How to register as a voter?
 

Those wanting to get registered as a voter, change their address or look if their names are in the list, they can visit National Voter Service Portal (NSVP).
 
New voters must fill Form 6 which is available on the NSVP portal.

If an individual wants to delete his/her name from the voters’ list and relocate it to a new constituency, to update the details, Form 6 should be filled along with Form 7.  
 
Form 6 is to register the individual as a voter in the new constituency while Form 7 will help authorities delete the namre from the voters’ list in the old constituency.
 
One can collect the copies of the two forms mentioned above from the electoral registration office, assistant electoral office or booth-level offices. Fill the forms and submit them along with hard copies of age and address proof in the same office from where the forms were taken.
 
In case of people being shown as deceased in the electoral rolls even while they are alive, the details of that person have to checked carefully and changed. It could be either due to a mistake in the spelling of the name or incorrect age. 
 
To update or correct details on the electoral rolls, one must fill Form 8. If you have to relocate to a different place within the constituency, fill Form 8A.
 
The Election Commission of India prepares the electoral rolls with the names of voters aged 18 years and above, and issues voter ID cards to help them exercise franchise.
