The election fever is catching up PAN India – political parties are announcing their candidate constituencies, charismatic leaders have started campaigning and citizens are hopeful of seeing a change once new Government assumes role of leading the country. This will be the world’s biggest elections held till date. As responsible citizens we must consider exercising our franchise by voting for the right candidate. To do this one’s name must be present in the electoral rolls. Earlier one had to visit local poll booth to verify if his/her name is present in the list but now things have changed and are a lot simpler. This can be done online or even by sending an SMS.
