The elections are being held all over India, it's that time of the year again! As we all know, India has all types of voters: enthusiastic voters, first timers, lazy, but forced, doing it out of ethics, etc. While polls to elect a new Lok Sabha was held from 11 April, and the results will be declared on the 23 May. Here are 15 facts you need to know about this years elections:

1. The propaganda is huge and complicated.

India doesn't run without politicians and our politicians stand out because of corruption. When elections are supposed to arrive, the propaganda is so mind boggling that out-of-the-reach statements are made, movies are made to show the good side of the parties and what not. It's crazy.



2. The expense is real.

Now, this is a real issue. India, being a country driven by poverty in a lot of places can't afford these kinds of expenses just so that people elect the 'better giving' party. In the 2014 elections, India spent around 3800 crores, just for the facts.

Or that's what we all are hoping. Because in these years, Asia's third-largest economy appears to have lost some of its momentum.

9. Contribution of women.

This time, a total of 142 women candidates will contest in the third phase of Lok Sabha Elections 2019 which is clearly an increase in the no. of women candidates as compared to the past two phases.


10. Thought politicians will be charged free? Lol.

Guess what, almost 340 candidates with criminal cases are contesting in the third phase of General Elections 2019.


11. 10% more poll stations this time.

As compared to 2014, ECI has set up 10 lakh polling stations all over the country which means better spaced out services.


12. The machinery has been advanced.

As soon as the voters vote will be cast, a slip will be printed on the VVPAT printer which will show the serial number, name and symbol of the candidate party to the voter, as a verification. After it, the printed slip will automatically gets cut and falls into a sealed drop box for privacy of the individual vote.
