(Reuters File) The voter turnout in the fifth phase of Lok Sabha elections in 49 constituencies on Monday was higher than the polling in the same seats in 2019, as provisional figures at 10.30 pm on Tuesday showed 62.15% voting.

Though the final turnout figure is expected to be released by the Election Commission by Friday, the EC’s Voter Turnout app, which shows real-time updates as and when reports from all polling stations are verified and added, showed Monday’s turnout at 62.15%, higher than the 2019 final polling figure of 61.82%.

After the voting on Monday, the EC said in a statement at night that the approximate turnout was 60.09%, but the number was likely to rise.

The trend of increased voting in J&K continued on Monday, with Baramulla recording a 24 percentage points increase from 34.3% in 2019 to 59.1% as of Tuesday. While the turnout has increased across J&K so far, the boundaries of the constituencies have changed following the 2022 delimitation, making seat-wise comparison difficult.

Of the eight states and UTs in phase five, J&K (59.1%), Ladakh (69.62%), Maharashtra (56.89%) and Odisha (73.11%) saw a higher turnout than 2019. The turnout in West Bengal (78.45%), Bihar (56.76%), Jharkhand (63.02%) and Uttar Pradesh (58.02%) was lower than the 2019 figures as of 11pm. The gap for Bihar and UP was narrow and could close by the time the final figures are in.
