Tamil actor Sivakarthikeyan was very determined to vote this year. He wanted to cast his vote against any odd, even if that includes voting from an area where he is not registered. Tamil Nadu Chief Electoral officer, Sathyapraba Sahoo has now sought an explanation after allegations were hurled against the actor and election official. The bizarre cases of names going missing from the voters' list are not peculiar in India and it happens every year. However, this time actor Sivakarthikeyan fell prey to it. Sunny Deol Joins BJP, Likely to Contest Lok Sabha Elections 2019 from Gurdaspur.

As per recent reports, the actor wasn't allowed to cast his vote after the official didn't find his name in the booth's voters' list.  He then reportedly went home, got his voter ID and visited another booth at a private school in Valasaravakkam to cast his vote. Surprisingly the actor was allowed to vote despite not having his name in the list. When the Election Commission was made aware of this goof-up, they decided to investigate the matter further. Confirmed! Sivakarthikeyan’s Next With Pasanga Director Pandiraj.

We have now sought a detailed report from the Chennai district election officer (DEO) as to how the official in the school allowed the actor to vote without his name being on the electoral roll,” Mr Sathyapraba was quoted saying. We wonder if the actor will be summoned to narrate his side of the story or the goof-up will be rectified eventually.
