Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju said in Lok Sabha that the government is considering ideas to integrate Aadhaar with electoral rolls to prevent fraudulent voting and to allow Indians working overseas to vote electronically.

Rijiju stated that election fraud is a major issue, and that the government was trying ways to combat it. One of the methods they have thought about is to link Aadhaar to the election roll. For the time being, integrating Aadhaar to election rolls is entirely voluntary.
