Spread the word: Online Voting – e-Voter Registration

by Abhishek

I received following email from State Election Commission for e-Voter registration. 

The mentioned website in the email opens blank for me on my Mac. May be it works only on IE6 on Windows 98! 

But if it works for you, you should go ahead and register yourself as e-Voter. 

Also don’t forget to spread the word…
