Abstract:
Voters form the bedrock of any democratic nation. Their power is reflected in a country's reliance on elections to shape its future. However, the electoral process can never be at its optimum efficiency if the voting body does not stand for views and opinions of the entirety of a country's population. Through the backdrop of the 2019 General Elections in India, this paper aims to decipher the reasons as to why the voter turn-out, specifically in India, is not at its best possible number. The paper finally poses basic policy recommendations for the Election Commission in India to ensure the maximum number of women and men are given an opportunity to cast their vote and thus, strengthen the democratic pillars of their nation.
