Youth aspirations hold a strong promise of commitment towards comprehensive development, progress, harmony & opportunities for all. The youth are the primary visionaries in a world that is developing at a rapid pace. Not only do they think ‘out of the box’ but they also believe in holistic empowerment of a society. They bring forth ideas, recognize loopholes and strongly advocate for change that is not merely related to the current times but to the future at large. As such, their participation in major democratic events, especially an election, is crucial at various levels.

The largest democracy India is currently getting ready to welcome the 17th Lok Sabha General Elections, scheduled to be held in 7 phases across the country. Amidst much speculation, rhetoric and passionate discussion, this major event is an opportunity to celebrate the ethos of democracy through the power of participation as a voter. An opportunity that holds the possibility of ‘making a change’ through ‘active participation’, the upcoming election is especially a wonderful opportunity for ‘first-time voters’ to step beyond the threshold of ideology and actually play a decisive role.

With clarity, strong values and insight, the youth holds the capacity to make informed decisions and choose effectively and wisely. They are not hindered to step beyond limitations and walk towards their dreams and aspirations. As such, their voice is integral to the strengthening of democracy and the larger well being of society.

First time voting reflects its importance in the following ways
• Accountability
Equal Participation
• Responsible Citizenship
• Commitment To Collective Voice
Supporting That Which Matters

The participation of youth in a Democratic country like India plays a key role for the development of the country. The youth have determination and vision to lead their country by electing their representative. Unlike the days in the past the youth of today's generation is well aware about development and keenly knew the work done by the representative. Therefore they have the power to change the government and this increases the competition among political party to establish better governance.

There has been a substantial change in political view from the legacy age, thanks to the contribution coming from the younger generation of the society who are much more liberal in their thinking process.
