Learn What India's Parties' Symbols Mean By Drawing Them by Al Jazeera Digital
More than 2,300 political parties were registered to participate in the largest election of 2019. To help voters identify their candidate of choice, India’s election commission assigns visual symbols to political parties. Symbols include common items like a flower, an elephant and more modern items like a USB stick.
To explain the meaning of these political parties, Al Jazeera produced its first machine learning interactive story which challenged readers to memorise and draw key political party symbols. The results were both insightful and entertaining.
