The Election Commission of India on Monday launched a year-long voter awareness series with All India Radio.
The radio series will have 52 episodes of 15 minutes each, broadcast during the 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. slot on the AIR network starting this Friday, the ECI said in a statement. The episodes will cover voter registration, ethical voting, model code of conduct, EVMs and other election-related topics.
While launching the series, Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar said the episodes would be a combination of entertainment and information, and address urban apathy.
Mr. Kumar announced that actor Pankaj Tripathi, who was present at the event, would be a national icon for the ECI.
