Elections 2014: 5 Myths About the Indian Voter


The forthcoming Indian general election, scheduled to begin in mid-April, will be arguably the country’s most critical vote since 1977. As hundreds of millions of voters get ready to head to the polls for India’s 16th general elections, it is striking how little we know about what makes the Indian voter tick. In this lecture, Dr Vaishnav will explore five myths about the behaviour of Indian voters, which have recently been called into question. These myths concern the role of caste, corruption, the economy, regionalism and socio-economic status in shaping voter choices.
