Mandatory 30 minutes for your country every 5 years.

Gujarat makes voting a must in local polls

Believe it or not it has finally come.I have been wishing for it for such a law for years now. Surprisingly, It took a man like Narendra Modi to finally draft it. According to the new bill every registered person of the state will have to exercise voting or else will have to explain his absence.

Modi's argument:- cant we spare half an hour for the country every 5 years when people have given up a life time for the same cause.

Sounds strict but the thought process behind is immense. Take a scenario where there is 60% voting for a seat for which there are 10 candidates. Considering that these candidates have more or less the same patronage then the one getting 12-13% votes will win the election. This means a person ruling the seat will have disapproval of more than 80% of the people. This bill makes the voting mandatory and will ensure maximum turnout. Another feat of this bill is that voters are given power of the negative vote. Meaning which that if the voters don't think that any of the candidates is fit for the seat he can cast a negative vote. If negative vote is the majority then all candidates will be removed and replaced.Sounds good isn't it? So many of us just don't go to polling station just because we think (or we know) that all of them are thieves and just going to steal my tax-paid money. But now I have the option of rejecting all of then in one single shot. If people think that way in majority then all of the candidates will be replaced. Watch the embedded video below. Modi explains simple measures like proof of voting for buying a new car or a sim card. These kind of things will really push the middle class to vote. It is the class that has largely been missing in the elections only because they don't see any point in going for elections. Lets hope other states too follow the suit and finally the whole nation does that.

P.S.:-My favorite part in this bill was the concept of negative voting.
