To cast your vote in the 2020 Bihar Assembly Election, carrying your voter identification card is mandatory. The best document that can be carried is Electors Photo Identity Card
Voting for the third and the final phase of the Bihar Election 2020 has begun today (Saturday, 7 November) with voters from 94 constituencies casting their ballots from 7 am. The counting of votes will take place on 10 November.
For phase one on 28 October, 71 constituencies in 16 districts were included. For phase two on 3 November, 94 constituencies in 17 districts went to polls and for phase three, on 7 November, 78 constituencies in 15 districts will be covered.
To cast their vote, every voter is required to carry a voter slip (it can be downloaded online from nvsp.in) along with their voter identification card (also known as Electors Photo Identity Card or EPIC or Voter's ID) that is issued by the Election Commission of India (EC).
