Srinagar: The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Thursday said that 66.95% of voter turnout was recorded during the first four phases of the Lok Sabha Elections 2024.

In a statement, ECI said that approximately 451 million people voted during the first four phases of ongoing General Elections, with 66.95% of voter turnout recorded so far.

The Commission led by CEC Rajiv Kumar along with ECs Gyanesh Kumar and Sukhbir Singh Sandhu further directed CEOs of the States going to poll in 5th, 6th and 7th phase to timely distribute voter information slips to all electors and enhance outreach activities, ECI said.

“The Commission strongly believes that partnership and collaboration are essential pillars of voter awareness programmes. It’s really heartening to see that on the Commission’s request, different institutions, influencers and celebrities having significant reach are working enthusiastically on a pro-bono basis,” said Rajiv Kumar, Chief Election Commissioner.

He also added that a high voter turnout would be a message from Indian voters to the world, about the strength of Indian Democracy. He urged all the voters to cast their vote in huge numbers, “as voting day is not a holiday but a day of pride, by participating in the festival of democracy.”
