Voter ID in Haryana

Voting is a privilege that has been granted to the citizens of India as per the tenets of the Indian Constitution. This permits Indians who are above the age of 18 to vote, irrespective of religious, political or social leanings. India is one of the world’s largest democracies, with 543 constituencies and over 8 crore eligible voters and counting.

In order to participate in the election process, voters have to register themselves in their constituencies. The process for registration of voters has now been simplified in many states, Haryana being one of them, to encourage more eligible voters to register themselves and participate in the process.

Among the measures adopted by the Election Commission is the speeding up of application processing time, online application, as well as a number of other allied services.

  • Gurugram holds student elections after a gap of 22 years

    Student body elections are set to be held in Gurugram after a gap of 22 years. With the number of students studying in and around Gurugram in addition to the town’s close proximity to the National Capital Region (NCR) has increased the importance of the elections significantly. The student body elections is scheduled to be held just before the lok sabha elections and the legislative assembly elections in Haryana. The elections will take place in 12 colleges in the Gurugram region.

    Some of the issues that will decide the fate of the election are shortage of courses, security of girl students and poor infrastructure. Another challenge facing the student body is that despite Gurugram having good infrastructure for higher education, students opt to go to Delhi university even if they do not get the top colleges with the leftover students opting for University of Rohtak and Kurukshetra. No elections have been conducted in Gurugram since 1996 due to large scale violence. With the threat of violence ever present, conducting the elections peacefully is definitely a challenge. The elections will be held with 18 lakh students who are eligible to be registered as voters.
