About The Campaign

Vaad Vivaad Samvaad is a non-political and non-partisan campaign powered by YOLO, which is about the Bihar Legislative Assembly elections in the month of October and November. This election is the first to be conducted amidst the pandemic. Our team intends to increase voter awareness and focus on youth-centric issues through social media during the election period.

Our Objective

We created awareness about election SOPs (especially the ones related to the on-going pandemic), as well as about how to combat fake news and hate speech. Additionally we raised grass root issues faced by people of Bihar, thereby contributing to making these elections free and fair.

How Did We Achieve Our Goal?

Through this campaign, we made voters aware of the various guidelines issued by the Election Commission of India. VVS was undertaken online through social media platforms as we believed that this was the best way to tackle and bust fake news and hate speech. The campaign also focused on youth-centric issues and constituency-specific manifestos. We also provided a platform for various stakeholders from the state to initiate dialogue through YOLOTalks about how to conduct free and fair elections amidst the pandemic along with encouraging voters to participate in large numbers. Our team highlighted data-backed research and government statistics to pick out focus areas that the candidates should address. This campaign also helped in busting misinformation and malpractices in every corner of the state in the weeks preceding the elections. We also instilled the practice of KYCC (Know Your Constituency and Candidate) in the state, so that it can be followed in the later years as well.
