Are you a teacher? Register as a voter now!

Only 10 days left to register in the voter list for Teachers' constituency. The final draft will be published in January 2014 for the Jun 2014 election.

Only six states of the country have Legislative Councils in addition to Legislative Assemblies. Karnataka is one among them. Assembly and Council together form the legislature. MLCs have almost equal authorities, opportunities and responsibilities as MLAs. There have been several prominent ministers from the Council.

  1. Teachers constituency – 7
  2. Graduate constituency – 7
  3. Nominated by Governor – 11
  4. Elected by MLAs – 25
  5. Local Authorities constituency – 25

Teachers’ is the only profession with special privilege of electing their own representatives. However, not many teachers are aware of this.
