Representative ImageAlthough female voter turnout has been increasing across India–from 51 per cent in 1980 to 66 per cent in 2014–it remains low when compared with the adult population sex ratio in most states.In the 2014 elections, Madhya Pradesh saw the fewest women voters exercise their ballot relative to their proportion in the state’s population, while Arunachal Pradesh saw more women than men (in relation to the population sex ratio) turn out to vote.
