How to silently invade/ conquer Voters’ mindset –
1) However you have liberty to call me crazy and however it is unheard of where a Contesting Candidate campaigns “Don’t Vote me, but Vote the BeST”. Tell Voters- I don’t say give your vote to me, but Select the Best”. Tell them to Log onto mumbaivotes.com or make a Literature which contains info of all contesting candidates and thus distribute. Imagine the impact if the Media takes up this theme in the right perspective. Tell voters about Toll free numbers and SMS number launched by ADR & NEW.
Theatre/ Cinema Hall Owners/ Association may be contacted and request them to show a 2-3 minute clip, before the start of movie, of all candidates contesting in a particular constituency wherein the cinema /theatre is placed. [A short 2-3 minute documentary should be made of all contesting candidate from a particular constituency while gathering info from mumbaivotes.com.]
Being it cannot be regarded as a part of Candidates election campaign, there can be Exhibition of such documentary at all Public Places like Malls, Religious Places etc. Moreover, the same can be done under the banner of NGO Mumbai votes who is spearheading all this campaign of informing voters. Of course they must be apprised and informed of the same for their concurrence.
Being it is a apolitical exercise, the expenditure incurred in above campaign cannot be treated as election expenditure of a Candidate.
2) Empower your Voter. Empowerment can be effected in variety of fashion. One such way can be getting equipped him/her with relevant laws of the land. Provide him with such Resources. Please find some of such Resources documented by me. They can be given in CD form which is reasonably cost effective. I have no answer if you happen to think I am promoting my documented resources.
