In an initiative to celebrate and bring out more women voters, India’s Election Commission set up pink polling booths. Balloons, roses and rooms with women polling officers set a festive atmosphere in some Delhi booths. Once outnumbered by men, women voters have nearly closed the gap. Some believe they can make better choices. Women can run the House. They know better how to run the country also, so they know who is better for them, they who can run in a better way in a better way for our country. Some voted for the first time.
I thought that I should choose democracy over dictatorship so that drew me out. You know, I should go and vote this time against some ideologies which I don’t believe in, so this was the first time I voted. I’m very happy that I voted. Women’s issues weigh with young voters like this 19-year-old student. Gender inequality, pay wage gaps, also these two things are very important, also women security, women empowerment.
Women are demanding better development from political parties. There should be cleanliness. They should build a hospital. There is no facility in my village. The roads are broken. Sewers are overfloating. Nothing has been done. They are being wooed with promises of more jobs, safety, even free sanitary napkins as they emerge as an electoral constituency.

我觉得我应该投给支持民主而非支持独裁的候选人，所以这次投票很吸引我 。我这次投票要反对我不认同的意识形态 。这是我第一次投票 。我很高兴有这个机会 。包括这名19岁女学生在内的很多选民很在意与女性有关的问题 。性别不平等、工资鸿沟，这两件事也很重要 。此外还有女性安全与女性赋权的问题 。
很多女性都要求各政党提供更好的发展机会 。应该保证卫生，应该建造医院 。我所在的村庄就没有卫生设施，道路破败不堪，下水道堵住不动，但却没有人着手改善 。现在，女性的面前充满了更多工作岗位的希望，安全有望提升，甚至卫生巾也有望免费使用 。这是伴随女性成为选举新星而出现的现象 。。到处都是气球和玫瑰花，女性投票站工作人员在新德里投票站里营造了节日般的气氛 。虽然曾经数量远少于男性选民，但女性选民们已经几乎填补了鸿沟 。一些人认为，她们可以有更好的选择 。女性可以掌控议院，她们更懂得如何治理国家，所以她们也知道哪位候选人是更好的选择，更有利于国家 。有些选民还是首次投票 。
