Why can’t we in India have Voting via Internet or may be through mail services for people living outside their home states??
Isn’t it cumbersome that we still required to take flight or train to go and vote while we are living and doing job in some other state or may be outside India!!
Can’t it be linked with Internet through Govt. of India website. We have Passport, Voter ID cards, etc. then what’s the fuss all about
No Party of India ever speak on this. I really don’t know WHY
Voting Percentage still linger in many states around 60%
In fact the major part of this 60% is people who have never been outside their region
hence their view can be termed as myopic
they get carried away by cheap campaign of local politicians based on caste, creed, religion, etc.
if this percentage can be improved to 90% the additional 30% is having bigger picture in their mind
and they vote more on Growth, Nation, Employment, etc.
And the politicians will be forced to behave better accordingly
Lets hope this may happen in some form or other
Many of you might be surprised to note this that US constitution guarantees citizens Right for Vote and they take it very seriously. Even astronauts going to ISS i.e. International Space Station also gets medium to cast their votes from space
Recently I read in one newspaper that Estonia has enabled Internet Voting and they use technology for betterment of citizens in various domains
We in India also need reforms in this very important front
