For me, voting involves asking my Achchi (grandmother) if I’m registered. Then I just show up there, have breakfast and we both go vote. In certain areas, especially IDP areas this is not straightforward. You have to show government ID, which many people don’t have. Barring that, you need get a temporary ID card through the Grama Niladhari (government agent).
These are pretty simple instructions, but a lot of people (especially in the North and East) may be voting for the first time. Hence it’s good that this basic campaign is going on in all three languages. You can download, print and disseminate the graphics from here.
I’ve only voted once, but my tips would be to read the instructions, listen to your grandmother, etc. This is Presidential so you don’t have to remember numbers, just check the Betel Leaf or Swan. I’ll be checking Swan, for Sarath Fonseka. How anybody votes is up to them, but I hope you do.
