Ensuring Voting by Voters

Voter apathy is a major cause…

Voter enthusiasm in India’s electoral process has waned over the years on account of declining standard in politics which has spawned scams, corruption, nepotism and venality. The cynicism of educated middle classes has caused many of them staying away from exercising the franchise.

Rather than taking a pessimistic view, every citizen should realise the value of their vote and strive to reform the process from within. You should ensure that your name is on the electoral list. If you have just attained voting age, do approach the nearest electoral office to sign-on and get a Voter’s ID card.

Organisations listed in Resources below provide, through their websites, information which decodes voter registration process and other issues relevant to voter. They also assist citizens by helping them register and obtain voter ID card as well as by organizing online and offline meetings with candidates. 

Make an informed choice and vote...

Be it a general election for Lok Sabha or a state election or a municipal corporation election, it is not enough if you vote. It is far more important to vote responsibly so that the right person is elected as MP or MLA or Corporator.

To make the right choice, you need to be aware of the programmes of candidates as well as that of their respective parties. If a sitting member stands for re-election, his record during the previous term has to be examined to ascertain as to what extent he could fulfill promises made prior to election.

Finally, a non-negotiable condition that every voter should follow is that viote is not cast for any candidate who is tainted by corruption or criminality.
