turnstiles afire

92% of all registered voters exercised their franchise in the recent assembly elections.
in tripura.
it was 58% in the 2004 LS election for all india (and 67% in tripura)
it was 60% in the 1999 LS election for all india (and 68% in tripura)
it was 79% in the 2003 tripura assembly elections.
data is given in the rediff report.

now whoever wins this time will have a true majority and not a wishy-washy 'majority of polled votes'.

awesome rocking tripuraah.
