The Voters decided not to vote this time for reasons unknown.  The total voters who cast their votes were 49 %.  This is not a final figure and there could be some variance in it. This is the all time lowest previous was 52.29% in 1991.

 In most northern parts of the country which went to polls had very low voter turnout due to the heat wave, but in Belgaum the temperature hovered around the 32 to 35 deg Celsius mark? Now voters were not happy with the candidates in fray or were it that they just decided to be far from this is the question.

 In 2004 66% voters had come out and voted for their candidates, that enthusiasm was not seen today. In 1999 voter turnout was 67%, in 1998-61% and in 1991-52%.

 The Average voter turnout until last election has been 60%. Highest voter turnout was in 1999 which was 66.97% & lowest in 1991 of 52.29%.

 Due to less voting Belgaum could see surprise winner.
