What is the meaning of low voting in Haryana-Maharashtra

What is the meaning of low voting in Haryana-Maharashtra

Polling for the assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra ended on Monday.

Haryana had 65.57 per cent of the votes while 76.13 per cent voting was done in the 2014 assembly elections. Obviously, there was bumper voting in the last election but this time the enthusiasm of the people was very less.
In Maharashtra too, people came to vote less than in the last assembly elections. Yesterday i.e. on October 21, 60.5 percent of the people cast their votes in Maharashtra, whereas in the last assembly election the voting percentage here was 63.08.

Even in the Lok Sabha elections held in both the states, fewer people turned out to vote in this year. In the Lok Sabha elections this year, Haryana had a turnout of 70.34% and Maharashtra had 61.02%.

What does it mean to have less votes?

In Haryana, the voting percentage in the 2009 assembly elections was 72.3 and in 2014 it increased by almost four percent. Government changed in Haryana if there was four percent more turnout

For the first time, BJP came to power in the state on its own. In 2014, Narendra Modi's popularity was on the rise and BJP also took advantage of this in Haryana.

BJP's vote share in the 2009 Haryana assembly elections was 9.1 percent which reached 33.2 percent in 2014. Before 2009, BJP used to be junior to INLD in Om Prakash Chautala's party in Haryana. When the BJP decided to contest the elections alone for the first time in 2009, it was reduced to four seats.

In the 2005 Haryana Assembly elections, 71.9 percent people had voted and the government had changed. The Congress came to power defeating the INLD. In the 2000 assembly elections, the turnout was 69%.

That is, if we look at the turnout trends of Haryana assembly elections of 2005 and 2009, it is found that the ruling party has won only after the increase in voting percentage. But this did not happen in the 2014 Haryana Assembly elections.

Compared to the 2009 Haryana Assembly elections in 2014, the voting percentage was almost four percent higher but the government changed. But interestingly, the enthusiasm with which the people of Haryana handed over power to BJP in 2014 did not show this enthusiasm.

In Haryana, the vote percentage has been increasing continuously since the year 2000. This is the first time since 2000 that there has been a steep decline in voting turnout in Haryana Assembly elections. This much is clear that in 2014, the people of Haryana did not show as much interest towards the BJP this time.
