In the second phase of the ongoing eight-phased District Development Council (DDC) polls, over 48 per cent voting was recorded across Jammu and Kashmir UT on Tuesday, as per official data.

Official figures available with Digpu News revealed that 33.34 per cent voting was recorded in Kashmir division while 65.54 per cent polling was recorded in Jammu division.

The data reveals that overall, 48.62 per cent polling was recorded in the second phase of DDC elections across Jammu and Kashmir.

It is in place to mention here that this is the first election to be held in Jammu and Kashmir after the scrapping of Article 370 from the region last year.

The voter turnout, according to politicians and experts, is an improvement, given the security situation and the past record of election boycotts.

The 2014 J&K Assembly polls had seen one of the highest polling percentages — 56 percent — while the 2019 Lok Sabha elections saw a turnout of only 19 percent, the lowest in two decades.
