Are you ready to Vote?

Are you one of those who crib about bad roads and don't know what to do? Are you one of those who wonders where all that tax you pay to the government goes? Do you belong to the group which wonders how you can make a difference in society? Well, here is your chance..

15th Lok Sabha Elections are coming near and those who had missed the bus during the Assembly elections can rectify that and make sure that they vote and make a difference this time. I just got my Voters ID card made today and wanted to post some information to those who want to get their voters ID.

You should fill Form 6(available online and at voters registration centers) and submit to your Voter Facilitation Center along with your address proof and age proof. You will get an acknowledgment for the same. Once you submit the form, your name will be included in the Electoral Roll. When your name appears in the electoral role, you will be given information notices by the Electoral Registration Officers of your area. These notices contain your name and age, house number, constituency number, and polling booth or part number.

You need to go to the registration center (officially called Designated Photographic Locations or DPL)of your ward and get an Electors Photo Identity Card (EPIC) made.

You may register at Jaagore and make use of resources like Form 6, your registration center etc. Jaagore is also running a national campaign aiming to register 1 Billion voters in the next five years and is trying to spread awareness among citizens.

You may also refer to this article and get more information.

Let us all be responsible and choose our leaders with care. This time, cast your vote and make it count.

Haan, inclusion of names in electoral list ends on March 25th, 2009. So hurry!
