Any country which follows the Democratic system; must follow the voting system. Voting is not only the recognition of democracy; Voting itself is the democracy. The country can not access the label of a Democratic country without the support of citizens in the form of Voting. Very Ground level of Democracy meaning is that Country's supreme power is in the hand of its citizens. And for the implementation of "This" system our freedom fighters envisioned for India. Our freedom fighters went to war for the India to make it democratic. Thousands of Indians fought for our rights, they shed the blood to gift us what we have today.
From the source of Wikipedia; The Sixty-first Amendment' of the Constitution of India, officially known as The Constitution (Sixty-first Amendment) Act, 1989, lowered the voting age of elections to the Lok Sabha and to the Legislative Assemblies of States from 21 years to 18 years. This was done by amending Article 326 of the Constitution, which concerns to elections to the Lok Sabha and the Assemblies.
The Democracy is all about creating the Government which is elected by the citizens of a country. And that government works for the welfare and comfort of the society in form of better schools, healthcare activities, Prohibition on malicious activities etc. This is how the voting is an important right in our society. By giving the vote, people are making their voice heard and registering their opinion on how they do think the government should operate as well as execute and remain.
But at the same time, it also seems that citizens are ignoring voting. They don't go for voting. On the day of Election, Some citizens are ignoring their right to vote. By doing so they lose the chance to select their representatives in government for the next term. Those who are not giving the vote- arguing that vote of their really does not count or matter. Some of those are saying that they do not know good enough about the parties. Moreover, some still say that they do not know where or how to vote or how to register. Reality is these all are silly excuses. Its all about the ignorance which laid the country in wrong hands. And later they are paying for this ignorance.
It is really very important to make a vote and being the part of voting. Because Voting is the only supreme weapon for citizens. Please do vote, for the sake of your next generation.
