National Voters Day

This year ,India is celebrating its 9th National Voters day on January 25 2019 . The voters day celebrations was initiated in 2011 by then President of India ,Pratibha Patil on the 61st foundation day of Election Commission of India. Established in 1950 the election commission of india is an organisation which aims to increase the participation of number of voters and to encourage the newly eligible voters . 

Why is voting important 

Voting is a basic process that helps to form a country's government. One can choose their representatives through voting . Voting rights enable people with the right to question the government about issues and clarifications . Its also provides a sense of freedom to express opinion in major decision making for the benefit of the country in a democratic nation. Every year the state government issues necessary instructions to educational institutions to observe National Voters day .On this day schools work at instilling democratic values into students in the form of debates ,quizzes and competitions. The Constitution of India 1988 has lowered the voting age from 21 years to 18 years . While organizing an election the committee prioritise the generation of a clean voters list which is free from errors of duplicity and disqualification. So this was all about national voting day and why to vote.
