When polling under the first phase of the seven-phase Uttar Pradesh assembly elections ended on Thursday, Gautam Budh Nagar recorded a voter turnout of 57.07%, marginally lower than the polling percentage of 58.05 recorded in the 2017 elections.

But it was Noida which bucked the trend of the past few elections to register a voter turnout of above 50% -- 50.1% to be exact -- for the first time in over a decade.
