Lok Sabha Elections 2019: All You Need To Know!

Building A New Tomorrow

Held every 5 years, the Lok Sabha election or the national election is the largest democratic exercise in the nation.  Voters elect representatives to 543 seats in Parliament, and the party with 272 or more seats selects the prime minister. If no one party wins 272 seats, parties can come together to form a coalition government. This general election will choose the 17th Lok Sabha.

No matter which party comes to power this year, it is essential that each one of you go out and vote, even if you go ahead and press NOTA! (none of the above). Through NOTA, you can choose not to vote for any candidates who are contesting the elections. But, let us target to take our polling percentage from 66% in 2014 to 100% in 2019. This time, make your vote count!

In this blog, we have tried to collate all information that you might need or questions you might have about Lok Sabha elections 2019, before you go out and cast your vote in Phase 4 of the elections.
