    January 25 is National Voters Day. The voter has the power to form or change the government, so never underestimate the strength of a single vote. Let us know what is Voters’ Day and why and how it is celebrated.

    The Day is celebrated on 25th January every year since 2011. It is celebrated at over ten lakh locations across the country including polling stations, district and state headquarters, to mark the Foundation day of Election Commission of India, which was established on 25th January 1950.

     There is an age limit of 18 years for voting in India. At 18, the person gets the franchise. He can then vote in all types of democratic elections.

    Each year in all polling station areas, all eligible voters whose age is 18 years will be identified on January 1.

     In this order, the names of new voters (18 years of age or older) get entered in the voter list. They are also being provided with voter ID.

     The work of distributing identity cards to new voters is done by social workers, teachers and non-political people. On this occasion, a badge is also given to the voters, which reads, ‘Proud to be a voter, ready to vote’.

     In view of the declining trend regarding voting in the world’s largest democracy, the Election Commission had decided to celebrate National Voter’s Day.

     Enrollment in voter list is a voluntary process. There is no pressure in it. The Election Commission does the job of encourage the people of the country to vote.

    On the day of Voter’s Day, there are speech competitions, signature campaigns, voter ID distribution to new voters, photography of voters. Voter’s Day is also celebrated to find eligible voters in the country, to identify voters, to find voter numbers, to promote voting.
