Barring women voters among the four categories of voters who have been voted by the Election Commission this time, the rest are allegedly ‘Chupa voters’ (silent voters). The figures may seem small at the local level, but their total number may change the mathematics of political parties in the state. The total number of these silent voters has been 35.89 lakhs. These include 1303543 voters above 80 years of age, 683266 Divyang and 16.03 lakh migrant labor voters who have returned home from different parts of the country due to lockdown.

There are also 16.3 lakh voters of the state in the category of Chupa voters who live outside the state due to business. Due to the nationwide lockdown, they have come to their homes this time.

They have also been made voters during the campaign. Now their total number has increased to 16.03 lakhs.
