In a post on his official Facebook page, Tendulkar - now a nominated Rajya Sabha member - urged his countrymen not to "underestimate" the power of their vote.
"Every run counts in the game of cricket and every vote counts in an election. Don't underestimate the power of your vote."
Tendulkar said he was now in Mumbai to exercise his democratic right Thursday.
"Hope you play your part - Please cast your vote," the batting genius added.
" I have voted, have you? A wonderful start to my birthday, as a responsible citizen of our great nation." @sachin_rt
