Pune Corporation PMC Elections 2017 are just around the corner (February 21), and if you’re still looking for reasons to go out and vote, here’s the most important one:
The people you elect now will be responsible for a lot of things in the next five years – including building and fixing roads, maintaining city parks and public spaces, managing and funding local emergency services, and even deciding if a developer can build a 22 storey commercial building in your residential neighbourhood!
As a young and responsible citizen of the country, your vote is important and will shape the way your city progresses till the next election. You can start by searching your name in the voter list, which can be a struggle. Assuming you get to the voter search page, you have to select 10 different options before you can actually start searching. Choose a wrong option and you will never find your name!
To make this process simpler, and to encourage people to vote in the upcoming Municipal Corporation Elections, InTouchApp has introduced a missed-call number: 022 3965 9494 or click here.
