The wide reach and increasing popularity of social media has made it one of the most used platforms for campaigning and vote appeal. Even in the digital age, poll graffiti and limericks are making an impact on people’s decisions across the state of West Bengal. Walls are adorned by graffiti satirizing the opposition parties.  The creative and novel ways of vote appeal are more common in the rural parts of the state where mud walls are illustrated with cartoons of politicians. Poll Graffiti and catchy limericks are not only economical modes of campaign but they have their own charm which the mechanical social media lacks.
