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).

But what if you don't have your Voter's ID card? Are there any documents that can act as a substitute?

Here's a list of documents that voters can use instead of a Voter ID card as a photo identity proof to cast vote:

1. Passport
2. Driving licence
3. Service identity card of the state government or the central government
4. PAN card
5. Aadhar card
6. Passbook issued by bank or post office
7. MGNREGA job card
8. Health insurance card issued by the Ministry of Labour
9. Pension document with a photograph
10. Authenticated photo voter slip issued by the election commission
11. public limited companies
12. passbooks issued by banks or post office
13. pension document with photograph and official identity cards issued to MPs, MLAs, and MLCs.
