Dilip: What about Jammu and Kashmir? Currently, they are under the direct rule of the President

Sushil: Yes, the Chief Election Commissioner, Rajiv Kumar, said that Jammu and Kashmir will not have their Lok Sabha and Assembly elections at the same time. Because it has not had a state election in six years. but, it is expected to hold an assembly election by September 30th, as ordered by the Supreme Court.

Sushil: So, there will be a lot of poll dates. It will be challenging to manage all these.

Massive Electorate

Sushil: Obviously, there are nearly 968 million eligible Indian voters, which is the largest electorate in the world and has increased by 6 per cent since the 2019 election. They will vote for 543 Lok Sabha constituencies across the country. And you know that voters above the age of 85 can vote from their homes.

Dilip: Oh, this will require a lot of voting machines and polling stations with security measures.

Sushil: Yes, there will be more than 5.5 million voting machines and 1.4 million polling stations. A total of 15 million security personnel will be deployed to ensure the security and smooth conduct of the elections.

Dilip: Great, this is a massive deployment. Will the NOTA ( None of the above) option be available?

Sushil: Yes, of course, the NATO option will be available and voters will be able to see the photos of candidates. The good thing is that the gender ratio in the electoral roll has improved means more women are participating in this democratic process. In 2023, the gender ratio was 940 and now it is 948. 

Dilip: this indicates a positive trend towards gender equality in political participation.

Sushil: Yes, there will be several parties including BJP, Congress, AAP, DMK, TMC, AIADMK, YSR Congress, TDP and Shiv Sena, who will be contesting in the elections. So Who will you give your vote to?

Dilip: I am not sure yet. I am thinking about it.

Sushil: Me too. We have time to make up our minds.

Dilip: Yes. I will do research and then vote.

Sushil: Me too.
