The overseas Indians are required to send their applications for registration in the electoral rolls of the constituency of their place of residence, as shown in the passport. The application form may either be submitted in person directly to the Registration Officer of the constituency concerned or sent to such Registration Officer by post, along with necessary documents. Copies of the notifications issued in this regard by the Chief Electoral Officers of the states of West Bengal, Assam, Kerala and Tamil Nadu and the Union Territory of Puducherry which will be going to polls, are attached.
