1. Firstly, text your National ID Number (CNIC) to the number 8300

Make sure you include all digits without any spaces or dashes. You will soon get a reply listing your city, block number, and specific area where you must go to cast your vote. You MUST bring your original CNIC to cast your vote, as photocopies will NOT be accepted.
