India voted in a total of seven phases, where Karnataka witnessed voting in two of these phases. The state, which is currently being governed by Congress leader CM Siddaramaih, marked the 2024 Lok Sabha election on April 26 and May 7. The voting process took place across its 28 constituencies, including some of the key constituencies such as Shimoga, Raichur, Bellary, and Uttar Kannada.

It is interesting to note that Karnataka has been a state of interest for political enthusiasts because it has seen extending support for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during Lok Sabha elections and cheering its lead opponent Congress in terms of state elections.

Karnataka voter turnout

In the initial phase of voting, Karnataka recorded a 69.56 percent turnout, while it clocked 71.84 per cent voter turnout in the other phase of polling. Comparing the figures with other states in South India, Karnataka seemed to have a decent voter turnout. Notably, the number suggested 62.64 per cent in Telangana, 69.72 per cent in Tamil Nadu, and 71.27 percent in Kerala. Meanwhile, Andhra Pradesh was seen exceeding Karnataka and its fellow states by taking the lead with 81.86 per cent.
