They came to a booth at Lohardagga assembly seat in Ranchi on Saturday, cast their votes and left to participate in their wedding preparations.
While Rajan Ram is getting married today, his sister Chanda Kumari's wedding is on Sunday.
"We decided to vote with family members. We get to use our voting rights once in five years. Marriage is also important, but it's in the evening" said Rajan Ram.
