The Election Commission of India (ECI) is celebrating the 5th National Voters' Day (NVD) across the country on January 25 with the theme 'Easy Registration, Easy Correction'. The ECI's objective through NVD is to increase the enrollment of voters, especially of the newly eligible ones.
The national function will be held at weight lifting auditorium of Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium. It will be presided over by former president Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. Awards will be given for the Best Electoral Practices to Chief Electoral Officers and District Election Officers, and also to media houses and civil society organizations for best campaign in voters' education and awareness.
January 25 is also the foundation day of the ECI, which came into being on this day in 1950. The NVD is also utilized to spread awareness among voters regarding effective participation in the electoral process.
