Tips to Voters

Talk to your Grama Niladari Officer to obtain a Temporary Identity Card issued by the Department of Elections to vote this time.

A recognized form of identification is essential for voting

In the forthcoming Presidential Election, all eligible voters are required to present a form of identification acceptable to the Commissioner of Elections in order to exercise their right to vote.
The following are acceptable at this election: 
  • National Identity Card
  • Valid Passport
  • Valid Driving License
  • Identity Cards Issued to Clergy, Pensioners & Elders
  • Temporary Identity Cards issued by the Department of Elections
It is reported that over 400,000 eligible voters do not possess a valid form of identify and may therefore lose the right to exercise their vote unless immediate action is taken to obtain an identity card. Voters who do not possess a valid identity card should contact their Grama Niladari Officer with two recent photographs (1” x 1 ¼” in size) to obtain a Temporary Identity Card issued by the Department of Elections.
