It is been very evident that women’s who were only the house builder in the past, are coming out of their house and utilizing their voting rights. The turnout gap between reserved and un-reserved category is also decreasing very rapidly.

Every individual need to take interest in politics and use their precious voting rights towards a change. There should be no excuse in that why difference only one vote can make? Or, why to go and stand in a queue just to press a button and waste my whole time being in the queue?

The increase in education level and reach of media has changed the conditions of elections and voters. The voter count has been increasing continuously whereas, the voters are not increasing during election times. But the education among people has changed this trend at a decent level, yet there is much changes are required.
The people are making their choice on their own judgments, not on the others view or saying. This has been the very good and positive change among the voters. It shows they are taking interest in Politics and Politicians work. And this gives them the power and mind to think about what is right and wrong, or who is doing good work or who is doing bad work, who is corrupt and who is not.
After so much change in voter’s attitude, the city public is taking least interest in appearing the vote and make their valuable count.
