India is a democratic country with a fair election policy. The benefits of well run elections are increased participation by voters, usage of resources efficiently and member satisfaction. However, an unfair means of conducting the elections is still prevailing in our society in many areas. Due to various malpractices by miscreants, people have lost faith in the process and number of voters at polling booths have been reduced. In order to strengthen the democracy, we all have to fight against these electoral malpractices and election commission have been struggling for past few years to find a solution to malpractices during this time. We need to take certain steps so that the election operates smoothly. The best and the most effective remedy to curb malpractices during elections is to webcast them live over the internet for the general public to view the proceedings.
With political scenario also getting internet savvy, more and more states are opting for fair judicial process and want to stream the proceedings live on the internet. Election Commission of India has started live streaming of the selection process in various states. The voting process during the latest by-elections in June, 2012 in Andhra Pradesh was successfully captured by Livestreampro in 3300 polling booths across the state. All the Polling booth proceedings are demystified by broadcasting what is happening inside. The result was that the election turned out to be a huge success and number of voters will substantially increase in next elections.
