Hyderabad: In the last Assembly elections, Hyderabad recorded a low voter turnout, partly due to queues and waiting time at polling stations in the city. To address this, a status tracker has been launched to show real-time waiting times.
The previous assembly elections in Telangana saw a voter turnout of merely 40-50 percent. The top three constituencies with the lowest voter turnout were Malakpet (42.4 percent), Yakutpura (42.5 percent), and Nampally (45.5 percent).
