And I've never voted in my life.
There, I said it. And I am really ashamed of it. I've never got my name in any voters' registration list: the last few years I have been moving around too often to be able to do so. I really wanted to vote this time, and tried out the www.jaagore.com website. (That's a fantastic website, isn't it? I have to remember to always buy Tata Tea!)
But you're supposed to have stayed at least six months at the same place before applying, and at the time it had only been a month or two since we'd moved to our new flat. So I decided to wait. I tried again recently, and put in six months anyway. I downloaded my form, but I fell ill just around that time, so forget dropping it off. (I doubt I would have gone to vote even if I had got registered, though, I have no wish to stand in a queue with my health still a bit shaky.)
But I'm determined to try harder next time. I'm aiming to apply to get on the voters' list sometime this year. (And I'm noting this here so that you can shame me if I don't.)
What about you? Did you vote? Did you use the jaagore website? Do you think there'll be more people voting this year because of jaagore?
