Anantnag-Rajouri Records 58 Per Cent Voter Turnout, Highest in 35 Years: CEO Pole

Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) P.K. Pole announced on Saturday that the Anantnag-Rajouri parliamentary seat witnessed a remarkable 53 percent voter turnout, the highest in 35 years.

The previous highest was 50 percent in 1996. Overall, voter turnout across all five parliamentary seats in Jammu and Kashmir was 58 percent, surpassing the 49.58 percent recorded in 2014 and the 47.99 percent in 1996.

CEO Pole in a press conference here, expressed gratitude to the voters, polling staff, security personnel, and candidates for their roles in achieving this historic turnout. “The credit goes to the voters for making new records,” he stated, emphasizing the collective effort that made the electoral process a success.

Anantnag-Rajouri’s 53 percent turnout marks a significant increase from the dismal 9 percent in 2019. Surankote reported the highest turnout at 68 percent, while Kulgam and Anantnag saw lower participation with 32 percent and 33 percent, respectively. Migrant polling booths also recorded over 50 percent turnout, with 9,000 postal ballots cast.

A total of 9,000 polling staff were deployed in the Anantnag-Rajouri constituency to facilitate the voting process. Across Jammu and Kashmir, the turnout percentages for the other constituencies were as follows: Baramulla at 59.10 percent, Srinagar at 39 percent, Udhampur at 68 percent, and Jammu at 72.22 percent.
