Our Margin of Victory series has three new additions- Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh & Goa. All three states are gearing up for elections in the year 2022, and within the overall scheme of things- i.e., the Indian electoral system, the results are hugely relevant to the nation’s future.
Uttar Pradesh is the most populous state, Goa is the richest per capita and Uttarakhand is a vital pilgrimage destination with huge symbolic value to the country’s largest party.
The map hosts data for state elections conducted in 2012 & 2017. This series emphasizes the difference between the victorious and the runner-up, very effective in providing a bird’s view on the matter of electoral competitiveness.
