Are digital campaigns changing the game in the world's biggest election?
We’re in the middle of the world’s biggest election, and the battle to reach India’s 900 million voters is on every screen.

Political parties are spending big money on digital strategy and social media marketing. Ads, trending hashtags, memes and influencers are all being used.

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we speak to a popular actor turned politician, the public policy head of India’s own vernacular social network, and a digital marketer providing services to political parties and candidates. We ask whether digital campaigning is really a game changer, and what the election of the future looks like.
