How to Verify Your Vote Online and Via SMS

Verify Your Vote Online and Via SMS

Last year, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) came up with an SMS service that lets you check your eligibility to vote for free. Users used to pay Rs. 2 + tax for each message. Now, they don’t.

Check where your votes are by texting 8300 with your NIC number, without the hyphens (-). You will get a text message right away with all the information about how your vote went. This service is simply because it will save you a lot of time and because you won’t have to be there in person—Pakistanis who live outside their home country like it for the same reason.

NADRA sends out SMS messages to everyone with 8300, 8400, 8500, 7000, 9777, and 9888. These messages will tell you about government health programmes, citizen verification messages, and other important things. They’ll also help you get proof of your identity and get help from the government when you need it. You don’t have to do anything more complicated than reading the text to make sure your vote is real.

  1. Message 8300 with your full NIC number without the hyphens. You can also send an email to this number.
  2. Check out the answer you’ll get from 8300.
  3. It’s also a good idea to check that the electoral area in the SMS is correct. The Election Commission form 17: If you don’t want to, you can fill it out.
  4. If your vote hasn’t been recorded, fill out the Election Commission Form 15 and send it in.
