<< Sheila D Souza from Mandavelipakkam reports – April 15 morning
None in our area ( near Trust Streets) seem to have got voter slips as of today.
Many elders who are in 70s want to cast ballot so some of us are planning to help them get to the booth. One lady who is in bed and ill is keen so we have hired an ambulance to get to the booth.

<< Baskar Seshadri from Thiruvengadam Street, R A Puram – on April 15 noon time
Many local people sharing on local area WA groups say though they submitted Form 12B for seniors 85 yrs plus, the voting team has not come hom yet ; they expect it to happen Monday. Many also have not got vote slips yet

<< Ganga Sridhar, Raja St., Mandaveli – reporting April 14
Regarding the forms for home-based ballot, it was done by the GCC team by default, the shortlisted names did not include many 80+ aged residents. Home ballot provision should have been extended to people who had mobility problems also irrespective of their age. It would have been nice if such information was conveyed to the residents through media on time with contact numbers.

We had a few of our young volunteers delivering the voting slips to some residents who couldn’t come themselves to collect it.

<< Ganga Sridhar, Raja St., Mandaveli – reporting April 13
On behalf of Mandaveli Raja Street RWA, we organised a vote slip collection camp in Dwaraka Apts this afternoon. The BLO of our booth 211 Raja Muthiah School was available from 12noon to 3pm and will again be available tomorrow after 4pm for residents of Mandaveli Raja Street, Velayutharaja Street, Kandaswamy Street and TP Scheme Road to collect their voting slips.

  1. We stay in Mandavelipakkam First Trust Cross Street. So far no one has come home to distribute the voters slip. There are people of 80 plus need to vote from home. Request volunteers concerned to visit houses and distribute the slips and help elders for voting from home. Shri S V Sekhar can help through the person who came to his house to help his mother.
