EC makes it easy for first-time transgenders to vote

in INDIA, 24/08/2012

First-time transgender voters henceforth need not bother looking for a sponsor or beg their parents to sign the new registration form. A recent order of the Election Commission of India (ECI) has relaxed conditions with the addition of 'chela' (assistant) or guru (teacher) in the voter registration form.

Till now, parents of transgenders were signing the form and many refused to do so after their wards declared themselves transgenders.
