Gujarat voter turnout

Gujarat, where the second phase of polling ended today, saw a 58.4% voter turnout for 93 seats across central and north Gujarat. The state is witnessing a triangular contest between the ruling BJP, Congress and AAP.

Voting began at 8 am across 14,975 polling stations and will continue till 5 pm. The electoral fate of CM Bhupendra Patel and 832 other candidates, including 285 Independents, will be decided in the second phase.

As the polling ended, Chief Electoral Officer P. Bharathi said the polling in 14 districts ended peacefully.

Addressing the press at the end of polling in the final phase, Bharathi said, "Senior citizens above 80 years of age voted and even disabled came out in numbers to vote. Wheelchairs were arranged for them."

She added that the third-gender, too, voted enthusiastically in the state.

How exit polls are conducted?

Exit polls are done by taking the feedback of the voters as they exit after voting. Some of the popular agencies that conduct exit poll results for elections in India are Chanakya, C-Voterand MyAxis.

Once the results are declared, a generic idea can be created regarding which party is likely to win and how close the contest will be.

In 2017, exit polls could accurately predict that BJP will win in both Gujarat and Himachal. They were even close to predicting the number of seats the party would win in the state, but for Gujarat, their forecast was a little inaccurate in terms of number of seats that they gained.

Health warning: Exit polls often get it wrong.
