Elections: In a democratic country, it is through elections, through the process of voting, we select our representatives, to govern our country/state and are held accountable for the same. Those who exercise their votes are called voters/electors. The instrumentality through which it is usually exercised is the ballot (in French, bulletin); and the meeting at which it is done is the election. In India, every person who is a citizen of India, above the age of 18 years has the right to vote unless she/he is disqualified due to non-residence, unsoundness of mind, crime or corrupt or illegal practise.
