State election department has made arrangements for counting scheduled on 1 February for all the three seats.

Information of all rounds of counting will be available on department's website, a spokesperson said.

Bypolls were necessitated in these three seats due to the deaths of the sitting lawmakers. Ajmer MP Sanwar Lal Jat, Alwar MP Chand Nath and Mandalgarh MLA Kirti Kumari (all of BJP) passed away in 2017.
