Assembly Elections 2023: Starting Nov 7, counting on Dec 3

The Election Commission has announced the dates for voting and vote counting in the upcoming assembly elections in India. Here are the details:

  • The vote counting for these elections will take place on December 3.
  • The Chief Election Commissioner, Rajiv Kumar, didn’t specify when elections for Jammu and Kashmir would be held, only saying they will happen “at the right time.” Jammu and Kashmir hasn’t had an elected government for the past five years.

Now, let’s look at the specific dates for each state’s elections:

  1. Mizoram will have its elections on November 7.
  2. Chhattisgarh will have two phases of elections on November 7 and November 17.
  3. Madhya Pradesh’s polling day will be on November 17.
  4. Rajasthan’s elections will happen on November 23.
  5. Telangana’s elections are scheduled for November 30.

The entire election process, including voting and counting, will be finished by December 5, according to the Election Commission.

These elections will involve a total of 679 assembly constituencies in the five states, which is around one-sixth of all legislative assembly constituencies in India. There will be approximately 16 crore eligible voters, which is almost one-sixth of the total voters in the country.

In Chhattisgarh, the elections will be in two phases on November 7 and 17. Madhya Pradesh will vote on November 17, which coincides with the second phase of voting in Chhattisgarh. The Election Commission recently held a meeting to plan strategies for conducting the polls smoothly. They discussed ways to enforce the Model Code of Conduct and ensure that money doesn’t influence the fairness of the elections.

Rajasthan and Telangana will have single-phase elections on November 23 and November 30, respectively. Legislative elections in Madhya Pradesh will be held on November 17, and legislative elections in Mizoram will take place on November 7.
