Voter ID Arunachal Pradesh

Voting is a right that our freedom fighters earned for the nation. Being a democratic nation, we are bestowed with the power to influence the destiny of the country. Every vote counts in electing the right leaders to shape and mould the country in the best way possible. Though this was the vision, voting has not gained as much importance as it should have. India has not proved to be competent as an independent nation. But this is slowly changing and it is the citizens who can make a difference. In order to cast your vote, you need a Voter ID card and should be included in the electoral roll.
