World's smallest woman casts her vote in world's largest election in India
The world’s smallest woman, actress and Guinness World Record holder Jyoti Amge showed up at the polls in central India to vote in the Indian elections today (April 11).
Amge, 25, stands at only 2-foot-1-inch but that has not stopped her from becoming an international celebrity, or exerting her political rights as seen in footage from a polling booth in Nagpur, Maharashtra state that she voted from early this morning.
She was accompanied by family members including her parents and smiled for cameras covering her voting.
Amge is a Nagpur native, where the current sitting Member of Parliament (MP) is Union minister Nitin Gadkari.
She first featured in the 2009 UK documentary titled "Body Shock: Two Foot Tall Teen", and was later named "World's smallest woman" in 2009 on her 18th birthday by Guinness World Records.
She has also appeared as a guest star in the fourth season of American Horror Show: Freak Show in late 2014.
