The students of Grade 1 to Grade 8 along with their teachers casted their votes in the assigned polling booth on the day of the election.
The students came equipped with the ID card – to make them understand the concept and significance of Voter ID in the voting process. Their names were checked against a student’s list by the Polling Officer (Teachers), ID were stamped at the time of their vote. They waited for their turn before being escorted to the voting booth, where they could make their choice in the utmost privacy.
The voting system that they learnt from their books had become a real life experience for them.
It is so important for the students to learn about being a responsible citizen. “The more that they learn, the more that they understand the importance of voting, the more they’ll want to get out and vote when they are older.”
