Residents of the US state of New Jersey will now be able to obtain voter registration material in Gujarati. New Jersey has a sizeable Gujarati population and this is first time that voter registration materials anywhere in the country will be available in a South Asian language.


In a country like USA there is a Gujrati voter registration and in Belgaum, Karnataka, India where the majority population is Marathi speaking all the voter list and the application are in Kannada only. That link has those voters list.

Infact there is a Supreme court ruling in this matter that if the percentage of a single language is more than 25% all the govt.Official documents should also be published in that particular language.But it has never happened.

I am not here to make another point and start the battle in between Marathi & Kannada speaking Belgaumites, But I just thought the Govt. there in the USA thinks that is the best way to collect the correct information then why not the same SENSE of working here also. That’s my only point.
