Tamil Nadu is going for elections today. V&R takes this opportunity to remind everyone to head on to their designated polling station (aka) voting booths and exercise your franchise.
Election Commission of India has a free SMS number called 1950 to which if you send your voter id, it will give you the designated polling booth.
Some points to note:
- Your vote is not for sale. If a party offers something bribe or tries to ferry you to a polling booth, report them to the election commission. Reporting to law enforcement is of no use because most police folks work hand-in-hand with corrupt politicians.
- If you are not satisfied with any of the candidates, choose NOTA in the polling machine.
- If your organization is not giving you time and/or holiday to exercise your franchise report to Labor Department and to Election Commission. It may be that your manager/supervisor has an unholy nexus with politicians making you to boycott the election and use your name to cast bogus votes. Stop them from doing that.
Let us give 100% voting. Even if candidates are unfit in the constituency, there is the most fitting candidate in every constituency. NOTA.
