We Won! From Rajeev Chandrasekhar

April 7, 2014

We won! Our armed forces will now get a chance to vote.

Last Monday, Supreme Court ordered Election Commission to facilitate voting rights for armed forces and not obstruct it.

The same afternoon, we delivered the petition to the Election Commission. On receiving our Change.org petition of more than 77,000 signatures, Election Commissioner, H S Brahma expressed eagerness to ensure our armed forces vote easily.

This is a huge step forward for our brave-hearts and this happenedbecause of you!

Armed forces personnel & their families stationed in peace stations, since Jan 1, 2014 will be considered as general voters & allowed to cast vote at their places of posting.

jonnalagadda, I would like to thank you for signing my petition, the Supreme Court of India for making this landmark judgement, veterans for their support and everyone who joined me in this fight.

The overwhelming response to this campaign proves to everybody that we are a nation committed to democratic values.

jonnalagadda, is there an issue you want to raise? Start a petition on Change.org and mobilise people to support your cause.

Please share this victory with your friends and family. Stay involved, stay engaged!
