What is Elections - A complete introduction Guide for Indian Election and Election Process and Check Election Results

India is a democratic country and rules of a democracy call for the need of periodic elections in order to ensure that the masses are satisfied with the current government or seek a change. Elections in India are nothing less than a festive season. 

The visits of prominent social workers contesting the elections at doorsteps, loudspeakers chanting name of the candidates, and rallies all create an environment of pandemonium. But amidst the pandemonium there exists an enthusiasm and hope for a better India which is possible only if people vote with freedom and sense of responsibility. In India, the elections are held at every 5 years interval. The last elections held were conducted in 2014 and BJP government under the leadership of Mr. Narendra Modi (Ex CM of Gujarat) was victorious.
Elections in India are divided into Lok Sabha (lower house) Elections and Rajya Sabha (upper house) Elections. The members of Lok Sabha are elected by the common masses to represent them in the people’s house.  The Lok Sabha Elections are contested every 5 years. The Rajya Sabha members are indirectly chosen as representatives of their states. The Rajya sabha elections are contested every 6 years. The elections are conducted in accordance with the guidelines provided by the Election Commission of India.

The elections can also be enforced in cases where the government is deemed dissolved before completion of their term due to any circumstances. The elections which are held under dire circumstances are a very rare phenomenon as an alternative of Presidential Rule (Rashtrapati Shasan) is more preferred in India. Re-elections are conducted if the parties which are not able to win contest the results with strong evidences of a wrong doing by the victorious party.

LokSabha Election 2014

‘NaMo NaMo’ was in the air during the build up season to the LokSabha Elections in 2014. Mr. Narendra Modi the current Prime Minister of India was the most searched name on google for quite some time. The election in 2014 was a revolution where new medias for publicity came into foray and after several motivational efforts, the youth of India casted votes in huge numbers. The percentage of casted votes has never been recorded as high as in the 2014 elections. Such was the colour and excitement surrounding the elections that newspapers, radio Fms, Television, Magazines and all other medium of mass communication could scarcely focus on anything else. The use of 3d transmission of Mr. Narendra Modi at venues where he could not reach also grabbed many eyeballs.


In the year 2014, a new option was added to the list of choices for the voters while casting their votes. The option created was NOTA (None Of The Above). This option allows the voter to express his disinterest in any of the parties contesting the elections and choose to be neutral while still making their votes count. The option of NOTA has allowed the people with political neutrality as their mindset to be still be a part of the process which leads in better governance of the nation.
