If you are a "permanent resident" of UP, you may continue to retain your UP domicile and vote there since you have a 'native place' there.

If you already have a voter card, you do not need to get it transferred to Karnatka.

Dear Sir / Madam,

An Indian citizen is free to exercise his / her franchise (vote) from any village, town, city or State. As you may be aware of the latest Government regulations, an Aadhar Card is sufficient documentary proof, for you to exercise your vote from any location of your choice.
