Shillong, Nov 27 (UNI) The Meghalaya Election department has replaced more than 1,000 Elector Photo Identity Cards (EPICs) following complaints of voters that the photos on the cards issued to them were different match.

Talking to newspersons here yesterday, East Khasi Hills Deputy Commissioner Bhalang Dhar said the district election authorities were ready to replace the voters' photographs if there were any discrepancies, adding that new computerised photos could be taken at their office chambers.

''We have changed more than 1,000 EPICs after voters complained that the photos on the cards did not match those of the holders.

Anyone with such complaints can come forward for getting photographed again,'' Mr Dhar said.

He said voters were also permitted to supply a copy of one of their coloured passport-sized photographs, taken against a white background, to the election branch for furnishing the electoral rolls alongside the voter's name and EPIC number.
