• Who are #IndiaVotes?
We are a team of professionals and concerned citizens who use Social Media for Social Change under the banner team @BharatSpandan since 2014. We have observed that only less than half of the population participates in Voting and selects the government of the day which doesn’t represent the majority voice. There is an urgent need of more people participation in electing the govt and take interest in the development of the country. Hence the team launched a campaign #IndiaVotes, working both online and on-ground across India with 2 phases: Phase 1increase voter ID % and phase 2 increase the voting %age.
• How can we join the #IndiaVotes movement?
There are 2 modes of campaign we focus on. One is online on Social Media using Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp. Other one is on-ground campaign. You can join us online by sharing messages of the importance of Voter ID and voting % increase. You can join on-ground with one of our teams working on increasing Voter % or you can form your own team to work in your locality, college or Office. We will also provide ground campaign material and help you plan the ground campaign.
• What are the major areas #IndiaVotes focus on in Phase 1- Voter ID % increase?
From our analysis we found that only 30% of the 18-21 age group people participate in election and around the same %age with working professionals. Our main focus is on registering Voters in colleges and offices.
• How are you different from other orgs in getting voters registered?
Voter ID is just one of the 10 odd issues political orgs working on. We are a non-political org and we promote directly helping people to register for Voter ID. We first get permission in the colleges to setup a booth and then register students directly on the Election commission website. Same with offices.
