Parliamentary elections were conducted in 2008 for the first time in line with the Constitution (2008) and Election Act (2008) of Bhutan. Since then, elections were held for local government in 2010 and the second parliamentary election in 2013. While elections were held successfully by the Election Commission of Bhutan (ECB) there were also valuable lessons that could be harnessed to bring in improvements to the election process. There is a need to acknowledge existing constraints, problems, barriers and to work collaboratively to suggest, discuss, debate and look for improvements. The initiative to review and consider amending the Election Act is indeed commendable and timely. Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa (DNT) has chosen to focus on one critical issue which has the potential to determine the success of future elections and in strengthening democracy. Voter turnout and its implications on elections is very important and the decreasing trend is a serious concern. We have therefore reviewed this issue extensively both in the literature and by analyzing available data and presented them in this report.
There are several factors that contribute towards low voter turnout of which personal costs of voting, lack of time/too busy, voter disinterest, low political engagement and apathy for politicians have been identified.1,2 In recognizing these, many countries have initiated methods to simplify the voting process to encourage more voter participation. It is crucial that all stakeholders recognize the risk and dangers of low voter turnout at this early stage in our democratic journey and take appropriate measures to correct them. This report is intended to inform and provide evidence to implement absentee in-person voting from Dzongkhag of residence which will greatly benefit the voter and the ECB.
