Many mails are circulating saying 49-O or I VOTE NOBODY

Use your voting right for a better INDIA

This is called “49-O

Why should you go and say ” I VOTE NOBODY“… because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that particular ward has received “49-O” votes more than 123, then that polling will be canceled and will have to be re-polled. Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them.

This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This would change the way; of our whole political system…. it is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public….

So either vote, or vote “not voting” (vote 49-O) and pass this info on…

  1. This is a false information based on unauthenticated chain mails…
    49(O) is a section in the The Conduct of Elections Rules, 1961, which says:
    Elector deciding not to vote.-If an elector, after his electoral roll number has been duly entered in the register of voters in Form-17A and has put his signature or thumb impression thereon as required under sub-rule (1) of rule 49L, decided not to record his vote, a remark to this effect shall be made against the said entry in Form 17A by the presiding officer and the signature or thumb impression of the elector shall be obtained against such remark.

    There is no provision of any cancellation of polls or even a re-polls.
