Assembly Elections 2017: 65.16% voter turnout in UP, 68% in Uttarakhand
 
Luknow,Feb 16, 2017):The second phase of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections 2017 saw 66% voter turnout, surpassing the first phase poll percentage (64.22%). People voted on Wednesday in 67 constituencies across 11 districts in India’s most populous state. This election is seeing a triangular contest, with the BJP, BSP and the CongressSP alliance eyeing the throne. The stakes in this round are the highest for the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP), which had done well in many of these constituencies in 2012 elections.

In the hill state of Uttarakhand, around 74.20 lakh voters will decide the fate of 628 candidates as 69 out of 70 assembly constituencies spread over 13 districts are going to polls. Polling in Karnaprayag seat has been put off to March 9 following the death of BSP candidate Kuldeep Singh Kanwasi in a road accident on Sunday.
