There were as many as 2,274 candidates in 199 out of total 200 seats, which went to polls on Friday. Election in Alwar's Ramgarh seat was postponed and the polling will take place later due to the death of BSP candidate Laxman Singh. Results will be announced on December 11.

The BJP is trying to retain power in the state it won in 2013, when it displaced Ashok Gehlot's Congress government in a state which tends to alternate between the two parties.
