General elections are due to be held in India in April or May 2019 to constitute the 17th Lok Sabha. Legislative assembly elections in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Odisha, and Sikkim will be tentatively held simultaneously with the general election..[2]

Electoral system[edit]

The 543 elected members of the Lok Sabha will be elected from single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post voting. The President of India nominates an additional of two members to the Lok Sabha from the Anglo-Indian community, if he or she believes they are under-represented.[3]

In the run-up to the next Indian general election, various organisations will carry out opinion polling to gauge voting intentions in India. Results of such polls are displayed in this list. The date range for these opinion polls is from the previous general election, held in April and May of 2014, to the present day.
