Tomorrow, on April 10, India kicks of the first ‘major’ phase of the election — after holding votes in just 13 constituencies in the first two round earlier this week (and the election in Mizoram state has now actually been delayed until April 11), fully 92 constituencies will kick off voting across 14 states and territories, including all of the seats in Delhi, Haryana and Kerala.
India, throughout all nine phases, will vote in 543 constituencies to the Lok Sabha (लोक सभा), the House of the People, the lower house of India’s parliament.
In addition, it’s worth noting that three states will hold elections for their own legislative assemblies simultaneously:
- Odisha (formerly Orissa): Phases 3 and 5 (April 10, April 17).
- Sikkim: Phase 4 (April 17).
- Andhra Pradesh: Phases 7 and 8 (April 30, May 7).
The results are expected to be announced on May 16.
