Over 36 lakh voters were eligible to exercise their franchise at 4,360 polling stations.
Around 25,000 security personnel were deployed on duty for the polling, which began at 8 a.m. and concluded at 5 p.m.
The polls were completely peaceful with no untoward incident being reported.
The bypolls was necessitated by the resignation of N Cheluvarayaswamy (Mandya) and former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy (Bangalore Rural) who quit after being elected to the Assembly in May this year.
The counting of votes is scheduled on August 24.
