In the past many elections it is found that the voters turn out is reducing sharply even though the voting day is declared as public holiday. Do you feel that there must be compulsion to vote for every citizen and if any one in not voting he / she should be penalised in some way.

In any democratic country, voting is the right of the people. However, if the voters turnout is wlowly and steadily dwindling, then we have to assume that there is something wrong with the democratic process of that country. Steps must be taken to investigate as to why the people are refusing to vote and remedial action taken. Penalising people for not exercising their right to vote is not the right thing to do.

1.people get day holiday, which they want to enjoy with family, 2. People get absentee, when no political party approached them with voter id and voting chit before polling date 3. Weather constraint too hot to go out 4. Low motivation, So only option is to go for compulsory voter ID card like PAN/ration card, with endrosement
