On January 25, 2011, the first ever National Voters’ Day was observed to encourage young voters to participate in the electoral process. This was approved by the Union government, which was then headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Sing.
Ambika Soni, a former minister of information and broadcasting, pointed out at the time that younger voters were less interested in registering on the electoral rolls.
Soni stated that the Election Commission launched a nationwide campaign to identify eligible voters who turn 18 by January 1st each year at all polling stations in India to address this problem.
These voters would be enrolled in the electoral photo identity card (EPIC) and given the EPIC on January 25, every year.
This year’s National Day of Voters is themed ‘Making Elections Inclusive and Accessible’. M Venkaiah Naidu, Vice President of India was to be the chief guest at this event. After being infected by Covid-19, he will not be able to attend the event and instead will give a virtual message.
Kiren Rijiju, Union law minister, will be the guest of honour. The event will also include the presentation of the National Awards for Best Electoral Practices for the Year 2021-22 to district and state level officers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in conducting elections in different areas.
The EPIC will be given to newly enrolled voters during the event.

The guide, which focuses on Indian voters’ basic rights as they are enshrined by the Constitution, enumerates the responsibilities that voters must consider before and after casting their ballots.
