2,500 schools and colleges in Maharashtra set up Electoral Literacy Clubs in 3 months

To tap future voters and raise awareness among youngsters about the electoral system, the Election Commission of India (ECI) has been promoting Electoral Literacy Clubs (ELCs) in schools and colleges since January this year. Three months later, around 2,500 institutions across Maharashtra have set up clubs.

The drive, launched on January 25, has seen better response in the state’s rural areas than in cities.
