Importance of Voting

The hallmark of a vibrant democracy is the power and the ability of the people to exercise their franchise freely and fearlessly. In many countries, the ‘right to vote’ is a fundamental right, but in India, it is just a legal right. All should, however, regard that exercising one’s franchise is a sacred duty.

As a democratic country, India is built on the foundations of the election. Our Parliament and Legislatures are of the people, by the people, and for the people. Voting is a constitutional right that we are privileged to have. We take it for granted, but the constitution has given us the right to elect who we want, and the right to make the change.
