Haveri: While the election officials are putting in their best efforts to get maximum people to exercise their franchise in the upcoming polls, a soon-to-be-married couple from Haveri has decided to do their bit to inspire their family, friends to vote by designing their wedding cards to appear like voter ID cards.

The couple – Siddappa Doddachikkannanavar and his fiancee Jyoti are slated to tie the nuptial knot on April 27, just a fortnight ahead of the Karnataka Assembly polls scheduled on May 12.

The uniquely designed card, with fonts and styles similar to the voter ID cards was conceptualized by Siddappa, an activist and employee with Indian Railways in Goa who was reportedly keen to promote Kannada after due discussions with a constable friend of his, who suggested that they promote voting in light of the upcoming polls.

The couple is said to have even sought permission from the District Collector before printing their wedding cards.

A look at the card shows that extreme care has been taken to make it appear like a voter ID while giving details of the marriage along with an important reminder that votes are valuable while urging guests not to sell their votes.

The mugshot image of the voter has been replaced with the couple’s image and the voter’s name has been modified to include the couple’s names.The Functional Unique Serial Number (FUSN) on the card – SJMRG27042018 – is actually a combination of the couple’s initials followed by the date of their wedding.

It may be recalled that last year a man chosen to promote the Swachh Bharat campaign launched by PM Modi by having a logo of the Swachh Bharat on his sister’s wedding invites. The image of the card had gone viral at the time and was even appreciated by Prime Minister Modi.
