Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 Live Updates: 24% voter turnout recorded till 11 am



Bengaluru: Karnataka is all set to vote today for electing its 15th Legislative Assembly after a fortnight-long bitter campaign by the Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S). Vote count will take place on May 15.

“Preparations have been made to conduct a free and fair polling in 222 of the 224 assembly constituencies across the state amid tight security,” state Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar told reporters here on Saturday.

The Election Commission (EC) on Friday postponed voting in Bengaluru’s Raja Rajeshwari (RR) Nagar segment to May 28 in the voter ID cards case, and earlier countermanded polling in the city’s Jayanagar seat following the death of BJP contestant B.N. Vijay Kumar on May 4. A single-phase polling will be held in 222 constituencies, including 36 reserved for the Scheduled Castes (SC) and 15 for the Scheduled Tribes (ST) and 26 in Bengaluru from 7.00 a.m to 6.00 p.m.
