Abstract
The implementation of the abstainer prevention model by the General Election Commission in Langkat can reduce the attention of political observers on the implementation of the general head election (Pilkada). The simultaneous implementation of general head electioninLangkat this year showed a decrease in the number of abstainers. The objectives of this study were (1) to investigate the shortcoming of socializing the election conducted by KPUD Langkat; (2) to create the new model of abstainer prevention to overcome the shortcoming of socializing the election; (3) to prove that the model can increase voter participation in the election. The descriptive research method with a case study approach was used in this study to prove the effectiveness of the use of the model. The results showed that the application of the abstainer prevention model carried out by KPUD Langkatwas proven to reduce the number of abstainers in the area. However, the implementation of the model collided with the electoral smart home program at KPUD Langkat. Political education by bringing in a community and religious leaders did not go perfectly.KPUD Langkat can apply the new model by integrating the election smart home program, full support of political parties and community leaders so that public participation in elections remains high.
