How can you say that the right to vote plays a key role in democracy?
Democracy is based on the principle of ‘for the people, by the people and of the people’. If this principle is to be applied in daily practice, it is necessary that all the people must be related in a decision-making process. With a country like India, where the population is too high it is not possible to do so. So, instead, it is more convenient that their representatives are sent for this decision making process. To ensure that a responsible representative is chosen, the voting takes place. The different political parties give tickets to the candidates, who then contest in elections. They go to different areas and tell the people as to why they must be chosen. India’s voting system is based on the concept of’Universal Adult Franchise’, which means everyone who has attained the age of 18 years has the right to vote in the elections. The people, after hearing all the candidates, vote for the most suited one. The candidate with the maximum number of votes wins the election.
Voting and democracy are synonymous with each other. Voting gives the people a chance to voice their sentiments, and the elected official is responsible for the well being of the people. Thus, the right to vote plays a key role in democracy.
