Kakojan College: Electoral Literacy Club (ELC)
Electoral Literacy Clubs (ELCs) are venues for involving schoolchildren, college students, and residents of rural communities through engaging activities and practical experience to make them aware of their voting rights. It is established in all educational institutions at the request of the Election Commission of India (ECI) with the goal of educating and ensuring the participation of young people and future voters, who are the foundation of Indian democracy. The ELC in Kakojan College is established in 2021 in pursuance of Election Commission’s instruction.
The vision of the club is to inspire young and emerging voters to enthusiastically engage in elections so they can gauge their voting power. As the institution is situated in rural areas, the primary goal of this club is to educate the students and rural people about the value of voting through enjoyable activities that will increase their awareness of their right to vote and make the registration and voting processes more familiar to them.
