Wish to become a Registered Voter/ Transfer your Voter Registration from one location to another

Statistic shows that urban voter shy away from casting their vote. For multiple reasons.

There is an equally large concern which results in a low voter turnout.–citizens who are not registered as voters or citizens who have not transferred their vote from their city or origin or previous stay.

Project Mumbai in partnership with the State Election Commission (SEC), Maharashtra, has launched a unique initiative, “Shambhar Takke Shaii-Mission 2022” to change this.

This on ground activation and massive initiative is spread across two phases. The first, pre-election, would aim to convert every unregistered voter, in Corporates and otherwise and young college entrants, into a registered voter.

The second phase of the initiative would be to urge and ensure every registered voter actually turns up to vote.

Through this, we are jointly setting up registration camps for corporate citizens (their vendors and families or house-help as well) and separate camps in colleges.

The outreach will also enable unregistered/migrant voters not registered in Mumbai to log on to the project Mumbai website, register their details which will then be shared with the SEC, which will initiative the registration process with such individual registrants.

While Media organisations, including Radio and news papers will assist in this outreach, several institutions, including the Rotary District 3141 has come on board as a partner to ensure that this campaign reaches every household and educational institution of Mumbai and MMR, thus making people aware of the need to be a registered voter.

Mumbai University will support the initiative through its NSS wing, with the students being ambassadors who will be trained by the SEC and Project Mumbai.

Shambhar Takke Shaii, a marathi term, means 100 per cent ink.
