The Bharatiya Janata Party is seeking a fourth consecutive term under the leadership of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as the state goes to polls in a single phase on 230 assembly constituencies on November 28, 2018. The voting will take place at around 65,341 polling stations. The Model Code of Conduct (MCC) kicked in on October 6, 2018, soon after the announcement of election schedule in the state by the Election Commission of India. There are multiple parties in the fray, however, the battle is between the ruling BJP and opposition Congress. The Congress is entering the election banking on the anger among the farmers and caste dynamics. BSP chief Mayawati had refused to go into an alliance with the Congress in the state. The results to the elections will be out on December 11, 2018.
