Parliamentary elections to the world’s largest democracy are no less than a logistical nightmare but India has demonstrated its capability yet again. This time, there were over 15 million new eligible voters, taking the total electorate to a staggering 900 million—that’s more than the entire population of Europe. Polling for 543 seats to the lower house of Parliament, and four state legislatures, was held in seven phases between April 11 and May 19. The results will be declared on May 23.
