Lok Sabha General Elections Phase 2

Second phase constituencies map for the India polls

Phase 2 of India 2009 Elections is scheduled on 23rd April. 13 states and union territories of India will go to polls on that day. One seat in inner Manipur will poll on 22nd April because of holiday on 23rd April. 128 constituencies will be voting. Some major candidates for Phase 2 polling in India include Rahul Gandhi from Congress, Sushma Swaraj from BJP, Sharad Pawar from NCP, Ram Vilas Paswan from LJP and George Fernandes, who is fighting this election as an independent candidate.

After the voting today, the 2009 poll process will be over in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Kerala, Orissa and nine other states and Union Territories.

Phase one Poll details can be found here.

Phase 2 Poll Update:

Although the polls went peacfully, the overall voter turnout was generally less than expected. Bihar saw just 44% voter turnout and the naxal attacks killed five people at Devaria under Muzaffarpur district. The neighbouring state of Jharkhand saw just 47% polling. Extreme heat waves in these regions, to the tune of 47 C can be one of the reasons preventing the voters from coming out. Karnataka saw 50% oting and 45% was observed at Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir. Voter turnout in Orissa and Assam were much better, with 61% and 65%, respectively. The Indian Prime Minister cast his vote from Guhati. He stood in line and was the 258th voter. Madhya Pradesh had 47%, Maharashtra 56% and Andhra Pradesh 68%. Uttar Pradesh just had 43% turnout. Amethi voting came as a shocker to Congress, especially to Priyanka Gandhi, with just 40% of voting in Amethi. Amethi is the constituency of Congress general secretary, Rahul Gandhi.
