Around 2.35 crore people across 78 seats in 19 districts in Bihar will go to polls in the third phase of the ongoing Assembly elections on Saturday (7 November).

The counting of votes for the three-phase elections in Bihar — from 28 October to 7 November — will take place on 10 November.

For phase one on 28 October, 71 constituencies in 16 districts were covered. For phase two on 3 November, 94 constituencies in 17 districts went to polls.

The term of the 243-member Bihar Legislative Assembly comes to an end on 29 November. Of the total strength, 38 seats are reserved for SCs and two for STs.

Around 7.29 crore people are set to cast their votes in the Hindi heartland state. Out of this, nearly 78 lakh will be first-time voters.

This time, the state is seeing three major contenders: the ruling and the opposition alliances and Chirag Paswan's Lok Janshakti Party which is angling for the role of a kingmaker in the event of a hung Assembly.
