Dear Srikanth,

This is just trash . Ignore it .
Engagement with WMIN Election process is limited to Chapter members  and
mentioning membership No is mandatory for Q&A page . As per Elecom informed
, non members cannot be allowed to engage with Election process. It is
mentioned clearly in the page.
Any questions without membership no will be reverted .

~ regards
