Voting for the Assembly elections 2019 began early in Maharashtra today. Booths opened at 7 am and will be open until 6 pm for you to be able to cast your vote. These elections mark the competition of the BJP and the Congress. They are competing for 288 seats in Maharashtra and 90 constituencies in Haryana.
We spotted a lot of Bollywood celebrities at the voting centres. Among the first celeb voters for the day were Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh, Lara Datta and her husband Mahesh Bhupati who fulfilled their civic duty as an Indian citizen by casting their precious vote. Take a look:
"I appeal to all citizens of Maharashtra to come out and vote in large numbers," said Aamir Khan to the media.
Preity shared a video of herself on Instagram and said that she was going out to vote. She urged everyone in Mumbai to come out and stand together as Mumbaikars and cast their vote for a city in need!
"We have voted in #Latur.... I urge every voter to go out & vote. #maharashtra #elections" said Riteish Deshmukh
Lara shared a selfie on her Instagram account captioned as, "Mumbai come out and exercise your right to vote!! #voteresponsibily #sustainabledevelopment "
