Apart from this, the newly enrolled voters would also be felicitated and handed over their Elector Photo Identity Card (EPIC).

The EC will also launch its publication ‘Leap of Faith: Journey of Indian Elections. The book captures India’s electoral history and the growth of representative and electoral principles in India and its evolution from the 19th to 21st century while another book ‘Pledging to Vote – A decadal Journey of The National Voters Day in India’ will also be launched.

This book shares the journey of National Voters’ Day celebrations by the EC from the Diamond Jubilee celebration onwards. Dedicated to the voters of the country, the publication, especially, its pictorials are sure to inspire the personnel who serve as ‘Frontline Warriors of Electoral Democracy’.

Apart from the above activities to mark the celebration, a national voter awareness contest on social media — ‘My Vote is my Future- Power of One Vote’ will also be launched. This is aimed to reiterate the importance of every vote through creative expression for the ongoing Assembly Elections 2022.

Since 2011, every year on January 25, National Voters’ Day has been observed across the country to commemorate the Election Commission’s founding day, ie January 25, 1950.

The primary goal of the NVD celebration is to encourage, facilitate, and maximize enrolment, particularly among new voters. The day is dedicated to the country’s voters and is used to raise voter awareness and encourage informed participation in the political process.
