Stray incidents of violence – firing, preventing some from voting and stone pelting – were reported from some places though voting was by and large peaceful in most constituencies.

Most of the leaders claimed that the parties they represent will form the next government in the state.

The polling percentage was 64.2 in the first phase of the ongoing election and a little over 65  in the second phase.

In the 2012 Assembly polls, the SP had won 55 of these 69 seats, while the BSP, BJP and Congress had secured only six, five and two seats respectively. One seat was won by an Independent.

There were 826 candidates in the fray in the third phase whose fate will be decided by 2.41crore voters, including 1.10 crore women and 1,026 people belonging to the ‘third gender’ category.
