The world’s biggest election starts Monday

April 6, 2014

Starting Monday and running for six (!) weeks, India will hold its national election. Approximately 815 million people will cast a ballot, making it, by far, the largest vote in the world. (Check out this cool WorldViews post asking various voters in India what matters most to them in the election.)

This infographic lays out some of the eye-popping numbers associated with the Indian election. Our favorite one? India has 300 million more voters than the next three democracies (the United States, Indonesia and Brazil) combined.
