Meghdoot post cards to woo voters

The Election Department of Puducherry is set to woo reluctant voters to exercise their franchise at the time of polling with an innovative initiative.
A number of new initiatives are being launched to take Voter turn out to new high in the UT.
Meghdoot post cards containing customised print would be sent to First Time voters, Low Voter turnout households and other targeted households in Puducherry. Appreciative of the new initiative, Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi said, “The State is well poised for a high level of polling. The polling percentage was 86 in the last Assembly polls. A number of initiatives are being taken to improve this voting rate. One of the initiatives is post cards which will be sent to the all domestic households.”
“Probably this will be a novel idea. Meghdoot post cards will be sent to all households in the territory as an invitation to voters to come out and cast their votes. ”
Will be sent to first time voters, low voter turnout households and other targetted ones
