There are 230 assembly constituencies in Madhya Pradesh, and Mizoram has 40 assembly seats.

Madhya Pradesh is ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), while the country's main opposition party the Indian National Congress (INC) is ruling Mizoram.
Election results in the two states will be announced on Dec. 11, along with three other states -- Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Telangana. While Chhattisgarh has already held elections earlier this month, Rajasthan and Telangana will go to votes on Dec. 7.
