The nearing elections is leaving everyone on edge and the tension is only going to get worse until the long election day is completed. While some political parties are cautiously optimistic, some are pretty nervous about the results.
In Telangana, we are going to witness 5,99,933 first-time electors who fall in 18 to 19 years age group. While the total number of voters is 2,95,30,838 for the 17 parliamentary constituencies. On April 11, 31 districts are set to go to polls which are the first phase of general elections.
In those 17 constituencies, three are reserved for Scheduled Castes and two for Scheduled Tribes. A total of 34,603 polling stations have been set up across the Telangana. As per the data from the National Election Planner, the state has a total of 2,95,30,838 electors, out of which 1,48,42,582 are men, 1,46,74,217 are women and 2,089 are from the third gender. Of the total electors,10,823 are service electors and 1,127 are overseas Indian electors.
Andhra Pradesh has 5,39,804 first-time electors. Therefore, the total number of electors combined together has increased by 12,58,015 (1.94 per cent) since the 2014 elections.
The first time voters in Telangana are absolutely important as they make the newest voices this time and is certainly higher than AP. Surveys predict that people are stepping forward as a self-help movement and this increases the political consciousness among the Telugites.
