Bengaluru, May 12: Exit poll predictions to be aired by regional news channel TV9 could be viewed here via the embedded YouTube link below. TV9 had tied up with research group C Voter to conduct a post-election assessment on the results. The exit poll outcome comes barely 3 days before the declaration of official results by the Election Commission of India.

Earlier in the day, voting was conducted in 222 of the 224 constituencies across the state. Voting was deferred in two seats, Jayanagar and RR Nagar, due to the death of the incumbent candidate in the former and the seizure of over 9,000 fake voter ID cards in the latter. The two seats would be contested on May 28.
