Chief Justice DY Chandrachud Urges: Exercise Your Right to Vote Without Fail in Lok Sabha Election

The Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud appealed to the people not to miss the opportunity to vote in the general elections, but to vote without fail, stating that this is an important duty in a constitutional democracy.

In the Election Commission’s ‘My Vote My Voice’ mission video message for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Justice Chandrachud said, “We are citizens of the world’s largest democracy, that is our country. The Constitution gives us a multitude of rights as citizens but we are each expected to perform the duties assigned to us. “Voting is one of the most important duties of citizenship in a constitutional democracy,” he said.

“I request all of you. Please don’t miss this opportunity to vote responsibly as citizens of our great motherland. Can’t we spare five minutes for our country every five years? Let’s vote with pride. My vote, my voice,” said Justice DY Chandrachud.

“Citizens play an important role in electing the government. That is why this government is said to be a government of the people, by the people, and for the people,” said Justice Chandrachud.

He shared the excitement of queuing up at the polling booth to cast his vote as a first-time voter. “When I vote, the finger ink gives me tremendous feelings of patriotism and a sense of belonging to the nation,” explained Chandrachud.

I have never sat without casting a single vote in my life. He said that even though he wandered for work, he never missed voting.

The Lok Sabha elections will be held from April 19 to June 1, 2024. The elections will be held in seven phases and the results will be announced on June 4, 2024. Compared to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the first phase of the 2024 elections saw 61.06 percent voting. In 2019, the voter turnout was 70.83 percent, which is 9.77 percent less than that.
