Mahalakshmi Layout Bypoll Results 2019 Live Updates: BJP Races to Finish Line, Wins from Mahalakshmi Layout
Check who won and who lost, who is leading, who is trailing and who will be the new Mahalakshmi Layout MLA (ಮಹಾಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಿ ಲೇಔಟ್​).

156. Mahalakshmi Layout (General) (ಮಹಾಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಿ ಲೇಔಟ್​) is a State Assembly/Vidhana Soudha constituency in the Bengaluru Urban district and Bengaluru region of Karnataka (ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ) and is a part of the Bangalore North Parliamentary/Lok Sabha constituency. Janata Dal (Secular) (JDS) won the seat in the 2018 Karnataka Assembly elections.

JDS won this seat in the 2013 Karnataka Assembly Elections with a margin of 15,370 votes (10.4%) securing 44.73% of the total votes polled.

INC won this seat in the 2008 Assembly Elections with a margin of 3,225 votes (2.84%) registering 37.62% of the votes polled.

Bye-elections for 15 of the 17 vacant seats in the Karnataka Assembly were held on December 5, 2019 and the votes are being counted on December 8, 2019.
