IntroductionWe all will be getting once in a while some or other elections. The elections may be for the local governing body or State governing body or central governing body. Many of us will be not utilising our voting power due to various reasons. Many of the educated people also will not be using their voting power because of some problems. The vote is not being given the required importance by many. But one should not avoid voting.
India is the largest democratic country in the world. Here the government is elected by the people and the government will work for the benefit of the people. A Vote is a weapon a common man has in his hand to change the government. The constitution of India has given us the right of voting. Any citizen of India who crosses 18 years will be eligible for voting power.
The voting power has become optional as there is no hard and fast rule that everyone should vote. In urban areas, this trend is on the higher side. Many people may not be interested to go for voting in urban areas as it may be far away from their house. That day all the offices will be closed and the professional may take the day as a holiday to relax with their family members. Skipping to vote may appear as of no harm but long-term consequences may be very severe.
Why to vote
ConclusionWe all know that our democratic experience in this country is not very encouraging and very disheartening. The corruption is in its peak. The economy is changing. Many ineffective governments made harm to the nation. So as citizens of this country we should vote to the best candidate from the available lot and see that good governance will survive. Now in the recent days, the right of rejection is also attaining importance.
The right to vote is the pillar of democracy. A citizen's vote has a say in a democratic setup. Many of us think that nothing will happen if we don't vote; after all, 'I' am only one among thousands. But it is wrong. "Many drops of water only make a water body".
In a democratic setup we are selecting a candidate to a position and through him, we try to implement some of our ideas which improve the general conditions of the locality where we live. Maybe, we cannot expect everything to come up as we wished, but at least something can be done.
A voter in a democratic set up is the actual king. Keep this point in mind whenever an election comes.
