The ‘One Million New Votes’ campaign is an initiative to make elections a truly democratic process by giving every Bengalurean a voice. The first step in this process is to enroll as a VOTER. B.PAC is continuing the efforts to sensitize those who have not yet registered to vote to become a registered voter in Bengaluru City.
The voting percentage of Bengaluru City during 2008 and 2013 elections for Legislative Assembly of Karnataka was 47.22% and 58.27% respectively. OMNV campaign is intended to increase citizen participation by registering as a voter and franchising their vote during the upcoming state general elections in 2018.
