Notes:

Use the filters to drill down further on electoral results constituency-wise in the respective Lok Sabha elections. Use the "Select State" dropdown to zoom into States/ UTs directly. The "Urban Clusters" dropdown allows zooming in to urban constituencies that are clustered together (NCR Region in and around Delhi for e.g., and other seats in metropolitan cities). You can see the data in either map or list view. List view will list the top 3 parties in each constituency and their vote shares. The "Clear-all" button will reset filters and the dropdowns to "All".

A "turncoat" is defined as a contestant who shifted parties from the previous parliamentary election.
