Many of us forget that we have one right (rather weapon) bestowed upon us by our constitution to choose those people who can shape our future, make our living place a better one. But we simply can't exercise this right of ours because we don't have our name registered in the electoral rolls (to clarify, u can vote even if u don't have voter id card, only ur name should be in the voter list). So, this Jaagore initiative helps us to register ourselves in the voter list, so that we will be able to choose our leaders. It just takes 5 minutes to register and the website is very user-friendly.

Jaago Re is started by Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy and members are all scholars from premium institutes like IIT who left their lucrative jobs… do visit www.jaagore.com once. They r doing some real good stuff. Register for voting online, in 5 min, n they'll keep you updated on mails n SMS about elections dates, your nearest polling booth and other stuff. They have many eminent persons in their advisory panel including our own revered NRN, Rakeyesh Omprakash Mehra(Director of Rang De Basanti) etc.
