      Sir,
      this is just to rationalize the procedures of voters verification through some fool proof method. Its just a beginning. We are in a long way to go… Else a Bangladesi or a Pakistani will become an Indian National. Even a Srilankan may get access to our system. Help the Government to get the Administration a bit better and modern.

    • Strictly speaking, voter ID is not a must to vote. Any national ID is okay, passport for example. What is important is your name being in the voters list.

    • No, you must be 18 as of 1 Jan, 2014 to get your name added in the new electoral roll being prepared for upcoming national elections in 2014.
