It's time to get responsible and exercise your right to vote for the cash-rich Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) happening in Maharashtra today. I mean, you might feel it's inconsequential and how is your one vote going to impact the system but then like they say, make every drop count, this is the least you can do to make a difference. While many citizens are already flocking at the elections booth to cast their votes. Here, look at Anushka Sharma who happens to be one of the first responsible celebs to cast her vote from the Bollywood brigade. Having voted the first thing in the morning, Anushka even took to Twitter and urged people to do the same saying, "Started my morning by casting my vote. Voting is our duty towards our country & its progress.Pls go out & vote #VoteKarMaharashtra" Check out Anushka's tweet below:
For all the ignorant, BMC has appealed to the voters to step out in large numbers to cast their votes today. The civic body is fully prepared to hold the election across 227 electoral wards through 7304 polling booths at 1582 places. Out of 91,80,491 registered voters, 50,30,361 are male, 49,49,749 female and 381 transgender. Dubbed as a "mini Assembly election", over 1.95 crore voters across the state are entitled to exercise their franchise to choose representatives for ten city corporations, while over 1.80 crore people can cast their votes in the Zila Parishad and panchayat samiti polls.
"Collectively, 3.77 crore voters are eligible to decide the fate of 17,331 candidates in rural and urban areas, including Mumbai," State Election Commissioner JS Saharia told reporters in Mumbai, adding that the election machinery is fully geared up to ensure free and fair voting.
