Voting was held for the third and final phase in Bihar on November 7, in which polling was held in 78 seats in 16 districts. It consists mainly of the areas of Seemanchal and Mithilanchal.
With this, the voting of the Bihar elections to be held in three phases was completed. The results will come on 10 November.

In the first phase elections held on November 28, 55.68 percent and in the second phase on November 3, 55.70 percent voting was done.
According to Chandra Bhushan Kumar of the Election Commission, “56.66 percent polling was done in the 2015 assembly elections, the figure which will come this year will be respectable in the context of covid-19”.
About half of the Muslim population of Bihar lives in the assembly segments of this third phase.
