How to Vote by Postal for Citizens residing outside INDIA/ constituency ?

Vote by Post in India

Vote by Post in India

Our Parliament Elections 2009 are due in a few months and for many citizens who are  eligible to vote are not able to vote as we stay away from our constituency/country due to our job commitments. It”s really painful to see that we register on an average, approximately only 55% of voter turnout in elections. We feel that one reason for this low voter turnout is people staying away from their constituencies due to their jobs.

So we tried to address our concern to the Chief Electoral Officer of the state and other major Election Commission Officers to introduce a postal/online voting. The postal vote is already available to Government officials but its not available to the General Public.It is essential that we are provided with the bandwidth and capability to vote and elect our future leader, whom will be vested with the responsibility of leading our nation to a better future.

More the number of request, more the emphasize ~ Please follow the steps below to raise a request with our Chief Electoral Officer.

Steps to request for our right to Vote:

1. Please address the email to the respective State”s “Chief Electoral Officer – CEO”. Please select your state CEO”s e-mail id from the excel (EMAIL ID”s excel file attached).
2. Please mark a copy to the following Election Commission Officers

Respected Sir,

Subject: Request for postal/online voting for people residing outside INDIA or residing outside the constituency during the time of elections.

Sir, first we thank the Election Commission of INDIA for conducting the elections in our Country in a very professional manner. We realize that it”s a very important duty of each and every citizen of INDIA to cast their votes during elections. It”s really painful to see that we register on an average, approximately only 55% of voter turnout in elections. We feel that one reason for this low voter turnout is people staying away from their constituencies due to their jobs.

We came to know that postal votes are available to Government Officers who are residing away from their constituencies during elections. We request you to extend this postal/online voting facility to other persons as well. It will be really great if we, people who are far away from our constituencies get a chance to cast our votes and play a part in our democracy.

Thanking You,

Yours Faithfully,
On behalf of many INDIANS living away from their constituencies,
$NAME
