Voters receive accolades from EC for exercising franchise

Sunday, 26 May 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

In a unique initiative by the Election Commission, voters received accolades from the election body in the form of a certificate for exercising their adult franchise in the national capital on Saturday on the polling day in the sixth phase of Lok Sabha 2024 elections.

These certificates were received by special voters who arrived early to cast their votes. Minister of External Affairs S Jaishankar and National Commission for Women's (NCW) President Rekha Sharma got a certificate for being the first male voter and first senior citizen voter at their designated polling booths, respectively. While Jaishankar received his certificate at Polling Station number 53, Sharma casted her vote at Polling station number 126 in New Delhi parliamentary constituency

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Jaishankar, showcased his inked finger after casting his vote for the sixth phase while highlighting that he was the first male voter in the booth. Sharing his picture on a social media platform, he stated, “Cast my vote in New Delhi this morning. Urge all voting today to turnout in record numbers and vote in this sixth phase of the elections.”

The Union minister further expressed his confidence that the Delhi voters would once again support the Narendra Modi government and Viksit Bharat. “I believe that the voters in Delhi will once again support Viksit Bharat and the Modi government,” he stressed.

Meanwhile, Sharma took pride in becoming the first senior citizen to vote at her designated booth in the New Delhi assembly constituency. “First voter and first proud senior citizen to vote in this booth. Ladies and gentlemen please vote and choose your leader,” Sharma wrote with a photo showing her inked finger and a certificate from the District Election Office.
