Letters to the Editor
Sir, With the advances in technology, the voters' thumb impressions can be scanned and kept in a database. At the time of voting, the impressions can be compared. This will also make voting easier as a voter can exercise his or her franchise in any booth. Those who are transferred or change their residence also will not face any hassle.
Sir, The Election Commission and the Government should introduce on-line voting, creating a network facility to cast the vote from any booth in India.
Sir, A candidate who has lost the security deposit in an election should not be allowed to contest the next time.
Also, if the voter turnout in a constituency is below 50 per cent, the election should be countermanded and all candidates debarred from contesting.
P. Jose & M. Roy,
Sir, The practice of contesting from two constituencies should be stopped. When the Constitution is clear that one person cannot represent two constituencies, where is the justification for contesting from two constituencies? A person who wins from two constituencies has to vacate one seat. Is it not betrayal of the electorate in that constituency?
