Voter Awareness Campaign by Mass for Awareness

Democracy is a form of government in which power is held by “the people" under a free electoral system. It is derived from the Greek δημοκρατία (dimokratia), "popular government" which was coined from δήμος (dēmos), "people" and κράτος (kratos), "rule, strength" in the middle of the 5th-4th century BC to denote the political systems then existing in some Greek city-states, notably Athens following a popular uprising in 508 BC.

When we talk about democracy, the popular phrase of Abraham Lincoln comes in mind that “Democracy is of the people, for the people and by the people”. This really is the ideal way of looking at the democratic system but being the biggest democracy in the world we can understand that level of participation and sense of ownership among people are not so high.

India is a democratic country . What is meant by democracy? Is it merely a system of government? According to the opinion of J.W Garner, the great political scientist "Democracy has been variously conceived as a political status, an ethical concept, and a social condition." Democracy is a system of living on the basis of certain social values. What are the peculiar values of democracy?

• Freedom
• Equality
• Fraternity
• Fundamental rights
• Social justice
• Independence of judiciary

Let us examine certain circumstances that put these values into practice

• All get opportunities
• Share responsibilities
• Opinions are expressed freely
• Respect the opinion of others
• Accept the opinion of the majority
• Ensure peoples’ participation
• Every one waits for his/her turn

What is democracy in its total sense?.“Democracy is not just a form of government, but also a way of life”. In a democratic system where people choose their representatives and sent them to legislative assembly / council or to parliament, election is the only medium through which voters can decide future of the political waves as well as the country. Basically election is being considered as “Festival of Democracy”. This can really be called festival when free and fair elections will be conducted and more important than this is when maximum number of voters will cast their precious votes. If we look at elections in India, we will find almost fifty percent voters do not exercise their right to vote surprisingly educated middle class.

The Campaign

“Vote for India” is a campaign for making people aware to understand the importance of free and fair election and more importantly to realize the power they have as their own precious vote. In India, we have always been talking about the electoral reforms and also we show our concern for choosing suitable candidates as people’s representative. This is only lack of awareness among the voters that results victory of those who have unparliamentary behaviour, criminal background and unfair track-record. “VOTE FOR INDIA” is a voter awareness campaign of Mass for Awareness. Organization has been working to spread awareness among voters to realize the value of their precious vote through various indooroutdoor cartoon exhibitions, seminars and road shows.
