    In Kerala, enrollment in Electoral Rolls, corrections of data and transposition of the entries in electoral roll are now being done completely online. Indian citizen residing abroad can also enroll online as overseas elector. Applications received online will be handed over to the Booth Level Officer (BLO) of the concerned Polling Station for field verification. The Electoral Registration Officer (ERO) will dispose of the applications on the basis of the reports of the BLO. At the time of registration and disposal of applications, the applicants will get SMS informing the status. After enrollment the Elector Photo Identity Card (EPIC) will be issued to the electors through the BLO or by post or from the Taluk Office concerned depending on the choice of the elector. A person need not visit any office either for enrollment in the Electoral Roll or obtaining the EPIC. Service is made available at the citizen's door step.
