In a bid to remove errors from electoral lists, the Election Commission of Pakistan has launched a SMS service to facilitate 85 million voters to verify their votes.
The service has been launched in collaboration with the National Database and Registration Authority to help registered voters check the status of their votes and particulars.
Registered voters can send their Computerised National Identity Cards (CNIC) number without hyphens via SMS to 8300 at anytime from anywhere in the country. After sending the SMS, the voter will subsequently receive a message in Urdu containing their name, village, city, tehsil or district, location (electoral area) and the serial number of vote registered in the preliminary electoral rolls.
