In 22 of the 90 assembly seats in the state, the number of women voters was higher than male voters.

The Congress, which secured the mandate by winning 68 seats and ended the BJP's reign, won 19 of the women voter-majority constituencies.

However, among the newly-elected MLAs from these 22 seats, only three are women -- Dr Lakshmi Dhruv from Sihawa seat, Chhanni Chandu Sahu from Khujji and Anila Bhendia from Dondilohara.
