NEW DELHI: The voting to state assemblies of Maharashtra and Haryana ended at 6 PM, with a voter turnout of 55% and 62% respectively.
The polling for 90 Assembly seats of Haryana and 288 seats of Maharashtra commenced at 7 am and concluded at 6 pm. The counting of votes for both state assemblies will take place on October 24.
The elections are significant as it is the first assembly polls after Modi steered the BJP-led NDA to a resounding victory in the Lok Sabha elections earlier this year for a successive second term at the Centre.
It is also the first assembly polls after the BJP-led government's decision to repeal Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. BJP is in power on its own in Haryana and in alliance with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra.
