Women voter turnout was highest in Barmer with 71.78 per cent followed by Banswara at 71.03 per cent, whereas Karauli-Dholpur registered the lowest turnout where only 50.39 per cent of female voters exercised their right. "This all increase could happen due to extensive efforts under Systematic Voters Education and Electoral Participation (SVEEP)," Chief Election Officer Ashok Jain said.
24 out of total 25 constituencies saw increase in voter turnout except Dausa where there it decreased by 2.8 per cent.
Dausa recorded 61 per cent polling this time against 63.98 of 2009-Lok Sabha polls. A total of 320 candidates including 27 women contested the elections on 25 constituencies in the two phases of polls in the state. (PTI)
