Students casting their vote at the mock elections.

RDF Wadlakonda School organized mock elections to introduce the students to the concept of elections before they have reached the official voting age. This would help students understand the election process, the power of the democratic vote and be thoroughly prepared when it comes time to cast the crucial vote for parliamentary elections. Secondary school students and teachers participated in the elections. Through this process students elected their School Pupil Leader. Eight students contested in the elections and M.Raju from class 8th was elected as the School Pupil Leader, while K. Sruthi also from class 8th was elected as the Assistant School Pupil Leader. The elections have given the participants an understanding of democracy, the role of government and parliament. The experience of the mock elections plays a role in stimulating future young voters to cast their ballot.
