As the single-phase polling in Karnataka came to an end, here is a quick look at how North Karnataka, Old Mysuru area, central and the coastal districts witnessed around 70% turnout on Saturday.

Both Congress and BJP feel the higher turnout will benefit them. Congress sees the higher polling percentage as clear sign of winds of change that would bring the party back to power. But BJP has a different take. It feels the increase in turnout was because more of its supporters turned up. Here is how the various regions voted.
