Agartala, April 13 IANS | 5 months ago

A staggering 85 percent of the electorate voted in Tripura in the two-phase Lok Sabha election, officials said Sunday.


This is the highest voter turnout in any state so far in the ongoing parliamentary election.

In 2009, the voter turnout was 84.45 percent and 67.39 percent in 2004 in Tripura, which is ruled by the Left Front led by the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M).

Nagaland recorded 82 percent polling for its only Lok Sabha seat last week.

Over 86 percent of the 1.2 million electorate voted in the West Tripura constituency and 84 percent of the 1.13 million electorate in East Tripura, state Chief Electoral Officer Ashutosh Jindal told IANS.

Tripura created electoral history in the 2013 assembly polls when a record 93.57 percent ballots were cast. The state recorded 92 percent polling in the 2008 assembly elections.
