65.6% turnout in Haryana, 60.5% in Maharashtra | India News

NEW DELHI: Haryana recorded 65.57% voting on Monday — significantly down from its highest-ever turnout of 76.13% in the 2014 state polls. Maharashtra also registered a reduced turnout — 60.5%, as compared to 63.08% in the last assembly elections.
The voting figures in both the states are also lower than those recorded in this year’s Lok Sabha polls: 70.34% and 61.02% in Haryana and Maharashtra, respectively.
Polling was also held for by-elections to 51 Assembly and two Lok Sabha constituencies spread across 17 states on Monday. Barring a few sporadic incidents, voting was “peaceful and smooth”, deputy Election Commissioner Umesh Sinha said. Counting begins at 8am on Thursday.
