Polling in Delhi, Rajasthan, MP and Chattisgarh lower than assembly poll

NEW DELHI: It's been barely four months since assembly polls across Delhi, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram registered record turnouts but the polling percentages in Lok Sabha elections are already lower in comparison. Barring Delhi, all the states that voted in new assemblies late last year have failed to match the high voter participation that marked the last round of state polls.

While polling percentages in this general election witnessed an impressive jump over 2009 in all the five states, with Delhi and Rajasthan leading the way with 65.09% turnout (up from 51.8%) and 63.75% (up from 55.28%) respectively, the story is different vis-a-vis the 2013 assembly polls.

Though Delhi has kept up voter enthusiasm, having recorded over 65% turnout to match the assembly poll figure of 66.02%, the four Naxalite-hit constituencies in Chhattisgarh recorded just around 60% turnout as compared to over 78% polling witnessed in November last year. High turnouts in the Naxalite-hit areas during the assembly polls had ensured a good haul for the Congress in the state polls — though not good enough to unseat the Raman Singh government.

In Rajasthan, compared to the record-breaking 75.67% turnout that was clocked in December 2013, polls in the 20 parliamentary seats so far have seen only 63.75% voters turning up. The latest figure, however, is far higher than the modest 48.46% turnout recorded in the 2009 general election. A similar story seemed to be playing out in Madhya Pradesh, where polls held across 19 of its 29 seats witnessed around 60% turnout as compared to 72.69% polling in the 2013 state polls. Of course, this marked a significant rise over the 51.16% polling in 2009.

In Mizoram, which recorded 83.41% turnout in November-December 2013, the poll percentage in the current parliamentary poll was far lower at 61.70%.

The trend is different in states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, where assembly polls were last held in 2012 and 2010 respectively. UP, which saw heavy polling in its riot-hit western parts, has recorded 65% polling so far, surpassing the 47.78% turnout in 2009 and 59.52% in the 2012 state polls.

In Bihar, where the poll is being watched with much interest post the JD(U)-BJP divorce, the turnout in 13 seats completed so far has been 55%. However, this is higher, not only than the 44.46% polling witnessed in the state in 2009 general election but also the 52.73% in the 2010 assembly polls.
