Lost Votes Bennett Coleman, The Times of India
Like today’s India, countless Indians are on the move. For work or education. And so are our bank accounts which automatically travel with us. And also our mobile phone numbers and income tax liabilities. Perhaps the only thing that doesn’t is our right to vote. That’s tied to the place where it’s registered in. Tied down by a rule that subtracts crores of Indians from our country’s democratic equation. It’s time to change this. Time to turn these lost votes into votes that count. Because they can shape the destiny of our nation.
