It is believed that the voter turnout plummeted in districts of Anantnag and Srinagar, in central Kashmir, because of the boycott call given by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the National Conference (NC).
At the end of three phases, Jammu division recorded an aggregate voter turnout of 68.4 per cent while Kashmir witnessed only 6.7 per cent turnout. The state's aggregate voter turnout for three phases is 41.9 per cent.
The elections for the fourth and final phase will be held on October 16. As many as 260 candidates will be contesting for 132 wards.
