The current study examines the impact of demographics on the student’s Political e-Participation. The scholar conducted preliminary research to get existing empathetic of the selected topic according to contemporary researchers. The emergence of new digital technologies has resulted in optimistic concepts such as digital democracy, cyber democracy, digital agora, virtual community, and the global village, giving the impression that the cyberspace mechanically implies the broadening of democracy within society. The task of e-Participation is to empower people with digital technologies to be able to act in bottom-up-decision process, in order to make informed decisions, and to develop social and political responsibility. As suggested by the existing research, survey approach (Literature and Field Surveys) were adopted for data collection. Literature was used both for the preliminary and main studies. Primary data was collected through a ‘Structured-Questionnaire’ constructed using the working concepts extracted from the literature. The questionnaire included six Demographic variables while six of the Research variables (4 Predictors and 2 Criterion Variables) expressed through 43 questions. The demographic attributes on respondent’s attitude were checked through four hypotheses based on Gender, Residence, Qualification and Institution. Gender has partial impact on respondents’ attitudes, similarly residence and institution have also affected the responses in, but on the other hand Qualification has highly significant impact on respondent’s attitudes. The current study will be a role model and guideline for the researchers working in the same line of issues. It will provide them a local version of the problem thereby helping them to design and plan their research projects accordingly.
