Accompanied by high-pitched and intense election campaigning, the 2019 polls spanned seven phases across two months, ending on May 19, witnessing the Election Commission handling 22.3 lakh ballot units, 17.3 lakh VVPATs and 16.3 lakh control units. An estimated 67.11 percent voters turned up to cast their votes in this year's elections, which is among the highest-ever turnouts recorded in any parliamentary poll in India since its Independence. To put things into perspective, in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the voter turnout was just a little over 66%, whereas in the first ever elections in 1951-52, it was estimated to be 45%.
Counting of votes is set to begin at 8 am on May 23 in each of the 542 constituencies (the Vellore Lok Sabha polls had been countermanded).
