Brands launch social media campaigns to remind citizens to cast vote

The Karnataka Legislative Assembly Elections 2018 is scheduled to be held across the state on May 12. The election campaigns by the contestants and political parties witnessed debates, promises, and accusations. The contestants resorted to different media and methods to promote their candidature, from pamphlets to newspapers, to television channels and social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, were all used for the campaigning process.

No election can be complete without people’s participation in it, the right to cast vote is just not the legal right of citizens but responsibility too.

Different brands came up with campaigns in social media reminding citizens to cast their valuable vote without fail. Here are is a look at some of campaigns:

Nandhini

The Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) has come up with an innovative campaign to remind the citizens to cast their votes in the legislative assembly election.
KMF, the second largest milk co-operative in India sells milk and milk products under the brand name Nandini. The milk packets have been printed with reminders saying, ‘Vote without fail on May 12’.

The KMF’s milk products are consumed by both rural and urban population in Karnataka and Nandini is one of the most popular milk and milk products brand in Karnataka. They have rightly seized the opportunity to remind the citizen to cast their valuable votes.
