    The voter turnout in Hyderabad this time was over 61%, according to the Election Commission. This percentage was slightly higher than the voter turnout in 2019, which was 60.57%. It is expected that the final percentage may increase due to the extension of voting time and good weather conditions, as well as increased awareness among voters. The complete data will be released on May 14, and there may be a slight increase in voter turnout across Telangana.

    Out of the 17 constituencies, Hyderabad had the lowest voter turnout at 39.17%, while Malkajgiri and Secunderabad were also low at 46.27% and 42.48% respectively. Bhongir constituency had the highest turnout at 72.34%, followed by Zahirabad and Medak with 71.91% and 71.33% respectively.
