As Indonesian citizens, it is paramount to amplify efforts to advocate for their voting rights in democratic processes to use their voters. On the other hand, there are several complexities for voters in the world of democracy. Consequently, as an intermediary between institutions and the community, the Boyolali Regency General Election Commission (KPU) provides insights and information related to political education, further emphasizing activities to foster the spirit of voters during the Elections. The results of this research indicate that active voter participation is increasing with each implementation of the Legislative General Elections.

It has been evidenced that the Boyolali Regency General Election Commission (KPU) has successfully maintained about three times increase in voters exercising their voting rights. While boosting active voter participation, the Boyolali Regency KPU employs communication strategies through political education via socialization and Pancasila Student Profile Strengthening Project (P5) visits to several schools, involving students as first-time voters, community groups, community leaders, and people with disabilities.
