India Lok Sabha election 2024 Phase 4: Who votes and what’s at stake?

A total of 96 constituencies across 10 states and union territories will vote on May 13 in the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections.

In total, 969 million people are registered to vote in 543 parliamentary constituencies across 36 states and federally-governed union territories.
