Voting is Duty

as much as it is a Right.

5 phase elections for Lok Sabha from April 16th to May 13th

Interestingly there are a lot many initiatives by private entities to help public vote.

Like the Jaago Re! One Billion Votes': non-partisan nationwide movement that aims to awaken and enable the citizens of India, especially the youth, to register to vote.[1] It was launched by Tata Tea and Janaagraha (a non-profit organization.)

And also the Lead India '09, Lets make this vote count : A Times of India initiative

Apparently we have about 714million voters. (One billion I thought was the population).
The world's largest democracy is going for an election. I beleive we should also have the world's largest votes being polled.
