Uttarakhand Election Results 2017: Key constituencies and how they voted

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) looked set to storm to a massive win in Uttarakhand on Saturday, as they are likely to clinch the 70-seat Assembly with a comfortable majority, relegating Harish Rawat's incumbent Congress party to a heavy defeat. While most exit polls had predicted between 35 to 40 votes for BJP, the margin of victory — the party is looking well on course to cross the 50-seat mark — has come as a bit of a surprise to most pollsters.
