A group of Indian American youth in the United States have developed a smart phone application to help the unregistered voters in India register their names in the electoral rolls.

The android app "Vote for a Better India" was unveiled last month at an event "Big Ideas for a Better India," organized by the Overseas Volunteer for Better India, which among others was addressed by spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of the Art of Living.

The android app will be used to power Voteathon, an inter college voter registration competition that is expected to have over 10,000 participating colleges with the goal of registering over 30 million voters, the event organizers said.
In his address Sri Sri Ravi Shankar emphasized increasing the voting percentage during elections. Referring to the high voter turnout in the recently held assembly elections, he called for increasing the turnout to 95 percent.

The OVBI, in a statement, called upon non-resident Indians to register themselves to vote and travel to India for a fortnight to contribute to the voter education drive. It also urged them to encourage their family and friends to vote for a better India.
