Rajasthan Election 2023: Access results via official ECI link here
Rajasthan Election Results 2023: State's electoral history shows a unique trend as no government has secured re-election since 1993.
Rajasthan Election Results 2023: The fate of 1,862 candidates, including the current chief minister and Congress leader Ashok Gehlot, who are vying in the assembly elections of 2023, will be unveiled on Sunday as the results of these polls, conducted on November 25, are set to be announced on Sunday. The vote counting will commence in the morning at 8 am, revealing the early trends.
Rajasthan witnessed a voter turnout of 75.45% across 199 of its 200 assembly constituencies during Saturday's elections, marking a slight increase of 0.73% from the 2018 polls, as per election data.
Out of the total 200 assembly segments, polling occurred in 199, with the election in Sriganganagar's Karanapur seat postponed due to the unfortunate demise of the ruling Congress candidate, Gurmeet Singh Kunnar.
Among the 51,756 polling stations, the highest voter turnout was recorded in Jaisalmer’s Pokaran with 87.79%, closely followed by Alwar’s Tijara with 86.11%.
While the incumbent Congress, challenged by anti-incumbency sentiments, aims for another governance term, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), leveraging Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity, seeks to replace the Ashok Gehlot government.
Rajasthan's electoral history shows a unique trend as no government has secured re-election since 1993. The state has alternated between the BJP and the Congress, with the Congress emerging victorious in 2018.
Key candidates from Cong, BJP
Chief minister Ashok Gehlot, state Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra, assembly Speaker CP Joshi, several ministers including Shanti Dhariwal, BD Kalla, Bhanwar Singh Bhati, Saleh Mohammad, Mamta Bhupesh, Pratap Singh Khachariyawas, Rajendra Yadav, Shakuntla Rawat, Udai Lal Anjana, Mahendrajeet Singh Malviya, Ashok Chandna and former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot are among the Congress leaders contesting the assembly election.

What did the exit polls say?
Exit polls predicted a probable shift in power from Congress's Ashok Gehlot to the BJP in Rajasthan. Polstrat suggests a likely win for Congress between 90-100 seats, while the BJP is anticipated to secure 100-110 seats, just shy of the majority mark of 101. The role of ‘others’ with an expected 5-15 seats could be pivotal if the contest tightens.
On the other hand, Jan Ki Baat projects a BJP victory with 100-122 seats, placing Congress as the runner-up with 62-85 seats. Meanwhile, India Today-Axis My India aligns with similar projections: Congress potentially securing 86-106 seats, the BJP 80-100 seats, and 'others' claiming 9-18 seats.
Diverging slightly, the Times Now-ETG exit poll anticipates 56-72 seats for Congress and a notably higher 108-128 seats for the BJP, with ‘others’ securing 31-21 seats, shaping a varied outcome in this electoral forecast.
