Selling your vote

From Marginal Revolution:

"It is estimated that one-fifth of the Indian electorate sells its vote in some manner."


That's a summary of this article, which also notes "the share of voters is higher among the voters in the so-called below the poverty line, or BPL, category: 73% in Karnataka [where Bangalore is] while the national average is 37%."
