Exercise franchise to strengthen democracy, says judge

A first-time voter is given a voter identity card during the National Voters’ Day programme in Madikeri.

All the voters should exercise their franchise to strengthen the democratic set up in the country, said District and Sessions Court Judge Veerabhadrappa Mallapura. 

Speaking at the National Voters' Day programme organised by the district administration and District Legal Services Authority here, he said that the country should register at least 99% of polling. 

First Additional District and Sessions Court Judge D Pavanesh said, "All those who have completed 18 years should enrol their names in the electoral list. If we fail to exercise our franchise, we do not have any moral right to question the government. All the eligible people should exercise their franchise." 

Additional Deputy Commissioner Srinivas said that visually impaired people will get an identity card with braille script. 

Winners in the essay competition organised as a part of the National Voters' Day were given prizes.
