Voting and democracy :
In a democracy, a government is chosen by voting in an election: a way for an electorate to elect, i.e. choose, among several candidates for rule. In a representative democracy, voting is the method by the which the electorate appoints its representatives in its government.
Voting and democracy is very important in a nation because it provides people an opportunity to voice their opinion and vote for what they believe in, it holds elected officials accountable for their behavior while in office, and it prevents a minority from dictating the policies of a majority.
Voting is perhaps the most important thing a citizen can do to support their democratic form of government.
Democracy system :
A democracy is a system in which the people have a voice in the decisions of their community or nation. Voting has long been the method used to determine the will of the citizenry. Without a vote, a citizen is essentially voiceless.
Importance of Vote :
Voting is a basic process that keeps a nation’s governmental system works. It enables the citizens to choose their own government. It also allows the people to choose their representatives in the government. The purpose of every government is to develop and implement various policies for the benefit of its citizens.
In a democracy, every eligible citizen should be able to vote, including members of the military and civilians scattered across the globe.
Every vote counts :
Your Vote Always Counts, So Be a Responsible Voter. It’s your civic duty as an Indian to vote, and a precious Indian right. Remember that your vote always counts – not just in close elections, but in every election.
So Come out. WALK TO VOTE. EVERY VOTE IS PRECIOUS.
