Local elections are taking place today and it is the first time Photo IDs are mandatory in order to vote.
Some people were unable to vote because of the new regulations.
People took to Twitter to illustrate their frustration.

Kindly tell me what is the value of Voter Id if i cant vote . Our honourable Chief minister is asking us to vote. How can we vote if after following all the procedures our name is missing from the list2/3
