    Affidavit Portal


    The affidavit used to be displayed at the ECI website on a separate server. This was a separate exercise to upload the document. There was no link between the affidavit and the candidate profile. Thus finding the name and affidavit of the contesting candidate was difficult.

    Candidate Affidavit portal is a part of ENCORE that allows citizens to view the complete list of Candidate Nominations who have applied for the elections. To help the citizen to know the candidates, a complete candidate profile with photo and affidavit is made public as and when the Returning Officer enters the data.

    Earlier, the affidavit was uploaded separately and there was no link between the affidavit and the candidate profile. With the integration of Affidavit portal in the ENCORE, the process has been simplified and the errors are reduced. This portal was launched on 10 March 2019.





    For ease of citizens, the information on this portal is under categories as -
    Nominations Applied, Accepted, Rejected, Withdrawn and Contesting. Interactive interface features are also provided like filter and search to drill down from state level to Constituency level and Candidate level.

    • Enter the following URL https://affidavit.eci.gov.in
    • Latest election is already displayed
    • Select the type of election Parliamentary/ Assembly election
    • Select State 
    • Select Constituency
    • Click on Filter

    It displays the complete list of Contesting Candidates in the sequence as per FORM 7A which is the same as on the EVM machine. The Affidavits and counter-affidavits are available for citizens to view and download. Information such as the size of the affidavit and total download counts is also available on the Portal.

    Affidavit Portal has improved the transparency to a large extent by making the original affidavit online. These affidavit are also available from the Voter Helpline Mobile App. Thus citizens are able to read about their candidates at the convenience of their mobile or desktop and make an informed choice.
