Is it my Voter Card??

I just received my election/voter card today morning and (like everyone else) I am very excited for this. This is the first time I am going to vote for the elections and I am getting the feeling of being a responsible citizen.

I am happy for the 2 reasons. First, I can put my vote for the one, whom I think is capable of wielding their power for nation’s progress. And finally, I can now produce the card where ever my identity or address proof is required. 😛

I was going through the details mentioned on the card. But to my surprise, I came across some severe blunders made on it, despite of providing all the necessary documents for it.. 😯

1. My name was/is printed incorrectly.

2. My address was/is totally changed.

3. My DOB was/is completely altered.

Gosh, somebody please explain, how this card belongs to Me…                         This has happened not only with me, but also with some of my colleagues.

If such is the case, we cannot deny to say that, anyone can produce the dummy card and misuse it and the government will not even be aware about it.

Don’t these things matters when you give such card as the identity to a individual?

I just want to say that, if all these (responsible) things are done just for the sake of formality and that too irresponsibly,then whats the use..??                 How can we progress?
