He expressed hope that Mizoram will witness a good turnout on Friday.

“Mizoram has a high literacy rate as compared to other states. People are aware of their rights and responsibilities. I hope people will come out in large numbers and participate in the voting process,” Kambhampati said on Thursday.

Mizoram had registered a 63.13 per cent voter turnout in the last Lok Sabha polls in 2019, which was lower than the national average of 67 per cent.

The highest voter turnout in Lok Sabha polls was recorded in the 1996 general elections at 73.41 per cent, followed by 69.56 per cent in 1998.
