Dears,

The first and most important lesson to learn is this:
WIKIPEDIA IS ONLY INDICATIVE. It is not necessarily the Truth.

The specific point to be noted here is that one can go to the polling
booth, get oneself identified as a voter, be marked with indelible
ink, collect the 'ballot paper' [or, in the case of EVM, the 'polling
slip' to be given to the Presiding Officer for release of the "voting
key" of the EVM] and after all the process, refuse to vote. It is
perfectly legal exercise of Rule 49-O [Forty-nine Oh , not Zero] of
Election Rules under the "Representation of the People Act" in India.
No one hides that law or rule. Very few exercise this rule, knowingly
or unknowingly [often leaving the Presiding Officer sweating, if he or
she does not know 49-0 either!]. The Presiding Officer puts these
details in a separate envelope [with the relevant ballot or slip] and
writes it in his "diary of election" and the Statistics of votes
polled sheet. That is all.

Rule 49-O in an exercise in futility ...not glamourous as my friend
Ethel or others make it out to be. One cannot FORCE RE-POLL by
exercising Rule 49-0.

The parallel to that can be found in Bollywood films where the heroine
is "stood up" by some vain dude and she marries her childhood love. In
the case of a catholic marriage, the bride may end up marrying the
"Best Man" if the Groom develops cold feet at the altar as some voters
do at the Polling cubicle or compartment [generally a table with a
card board enclosure on the top] where the EVM or the ballot paper is
to be "marked" as per one's choice .....or lack of it. In the good old
days some people simple stamped the table and inserted a BLANK ballot
paper. That option is no longer there with the EVM ...the Electronic
Voting Machine that even an illiterate person who is politically savvy
uses in an impoverished India, but is yet to make its presence felt
in USA ...except in Sci-Fi movies!

In any case, most of those who discuss Rule 49-0 are those who have
NEVER VOTED in their entire life time thus far ....and are unlikely to
stand in a queue for two or three hours to foolishly tell the
Presiding Officer that they will NOT vote. The Presiding Officer
cannot allow anyone to make a speech in the Polling Booth ...not even
the candidates in the election.... so the question of making a
statement does not arise, save a fashion statement. Even then, one has
to go decently dressed to vote, or one can be arrested for indecent
exposure under routine Cr. P.C. sections on public morality.

I know this because I have served as a "Presiding Officer" for
elections for Parliament, Assembly, Municipality and Panchayat between
1983 and 1996. The only elections I have not helped conduct are Zilla
Panchayats [or ZP] as these came in later ...after rules were framed
under the Goa Panchayati Raj Act, 1994, and constituencies were
delimited for ZP members. However, the same rules apply.
