A viral WhatsApp forward telling women voters that they won't be allowed to vote if they have nail polish on their fingernails is fake. Fact-checking platform BOOM reached out to an Election Commission of India (ECI) official, who rubbished the viral forward.

The viral message reads, "Attention to All Ladies, Please remove Nail polish from fingers or else you will not be allowed to Vote".

BOOM found that the viral message is fake and that the ECI has not announced any rules for women voters to remove nail polish before voting.
