  • x-axis variable E-YOY (Election year on year)
  • Y-axis variable Total Electors & Voters

The values above each bar represent the polling percentage
(Voters/Electors). And the line across the bar chart represents the

As per the bar chart, the average increase in electors is calculated
to 27% E-YoY (approximately), which is approximately 14% higher

The average polling percentage for NCT of Delhi falls at 59.5%,
which is approximately 0.5% lower when compared to India’s average
polling percentage of 60%

The above mentioned average values are calculated without considering

The total voters in the bar chart for the year 1951 were back-calculated
from reported polling percentage, since NCT of Delhi had dual member &
single-member constituencies.

Male & Female voters:

1951 male/female voting values are not available; hence we have taken
data from the year 1972. The below line chart clearly shows that the male
