Voter Registration

I tried out voter registration on http://www.jaagore.com/. I had some problems printing the form from Linux. (using Firefox browser). Later I tried from MS Windows ((using Firefox browser)) and it worked. Best thing about Jaaro Re website is that it debunks many myths about voter registration process. Specifically if you are living away from your native place (i.e. permanent address, which for most young people, parents' residential address), you could still register and vote. In other words, even if you are living in rental apartment in some city in India, you can register and vote. Overall good work Jaago Re (meaning Wake Up in English) team!

People can also fill voter registration form (Form 6 etc.) by downloading from Election commission website http://www.eci.gov.in/forms/forms_Voters.asp

I have filled the forms, now I need to find out where to submit. Jaago Re website has some information about that too.
