SUPREME COURT REITERATES THAT RIGHT TO SECRECY OF VOTING INCLUDES CHOICE OF DISCLOSURE

The Supreme Court has in a recent case of Laxmi Singh and others vs Rekha Singh and others passed a Judgment dated 19-06-2020 and reiterated that a voter cannot be compelled to disclose information about whom he/she has voted in an election by way of secret ballot under the Representation of the People Act, 1951 (the Act). Furthermore, a voter cannot be prevented from voluntarily waiving such right to secrecy and choosing to reveal his/her ballot information to third parties.
