MUMBAI: At every general election, citizens of India turn out at poll booths in millions to cast their votes. Despite the mind-boggling diversity of India’s ethnicity and geography, the country comes together to exercise their franchise to vote and form the government.

Recounting Election Commission of India’s logistical feat of managing the largest democratic election in the world, Discovery Channel will premiere an exclusive one-hour programme - Revealed: World’s Biggest Election on Monday, 22 September at 9 pm. The special will take viewers through pre-planning and strategy process, implementation of that strategy across the country, monitoring its efficacy, the actual voting process and counting and declaration of results. These stories take the viewer from the run up the general elections in India to the appointment of the new Prime Minister of the country.

Discovery Channel’s Revealed: World’s Biggest Election uncovers the various unknown aspects of the electoral process - the story behind the unique indelible ink; the ‘model code of conduct’ that the Election Commission enforces on political aspirants; and the final counting of the votes. Discovery Channel’s camera crews reached the remotest corners of the country and covered the voting procedure and the challenges faced in dramatically different terrains. On one hand, the programme portrays the challenges in managing the polling in immensely populated metropolis and on the other hand it travels with election officials to set up a polling booth in one of the smallest villages in Ladakh where there are less than 30 eligible voters.

Commenting on the programme, Discovery Networks Asia Pacific executive vice president and general manager - south Asia and head of revenue, pan-regional ad sales and southeast Asia Rahul Johri said, "Revealed: World’s Biggest Election will present viewers the most comprehensive account of organising and managing the gigantic Indian general elections. With over 83 crores eligible Indian voters casting their right across 9 phases and four months, the programme will cover all the aspects of the 2014 General Elections from logistics, communication, security, polling, counting uptil the result declaration. This programme is a testimony of Discovery Channel's continued endeavour to cover epic events of astounding magnitude and compelling relevance to viewers in India and around the world.”

The viewers will see the elections as the gigantic event it is, with more than 83 crores eligible voters using more than a million electronic voting machines, media crew from all around the world and multitude of political parties campaigning. The programme reveals the enormous task by the Election Commission as 1.1 crore government officials and over 10 lacs police and paramilitary forces are deployed to assist with the elections.
