    Speaking of the mark, my index finger mark has already worn out quite a bit. :shocked
    The ink used seems to be all watery from Camel brand like the one used in school days. :-D
    With a little bit of solvent it would probably come of. Any chance to recast vote..:evilsmile

    Infact in Karnataka, mark was in the thumb for all. It was even published in FMs & other medias the prior day of voting to show your thumb for marking. No idea, why it was.

    EDIT: Here is the reason http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...ed-on-the-left-thumb/articleshow/34090635.cms

    No ramjn. Left index finger is the preferred one, but if there was a recent election and people already have inked left index finger, another finger is decided. Most common during re-pollings, but also happens as in Karnataka this time due to recent election to local bodies.

    and proof below ;-)

    The constituency which is most developed and with high literacy rate, Chennai South registered the lowest polling in TN at 58%.
    The most backward and undeveloped constituency, Dharmapuri registers the highest in the state at 81%.

    Strange voting patterns. Bangalore too had a similar story with just 56% (approx) voting

    Yes. Also, the constituencies around the Chennai area are the ones which dampened the overall voting percentage. These are the constituencies which registered less then 70%. Otherwise, all other constituencies throughout TN stood at more than 70% and 75%. :)

    ^^ Main reason for low turn out in cities could be due to migration issues. Like in B'lore, more than half of the population aren't localities and their vote would be wasted at their native as well. People who have been staying for years also haven't bothered to get their name listed here. And few of them who did; names went missing. So, its combination of more than one factor leading to low turn out. Its sad to see few people at my office proudly announce that they haven't voted for past 10 years :shocked.

    My wife and me walked to the booth at 13:30, went straight to the polling room, and voted. Whole process took about five minutes and was very convenient, including the walk from and to home about fifteen minutes.

    Didn't want to wait in the queue in the morning so decided to go at lunch time, good decision. If it were not for my wife I would have gone in the evening.

    Ink on the left index finger looks quite strong to me and should take a week to go I think. Last time too it stayed for a long time.

    But, these percentage is based on vote casted from the names listed not on the actual population.
