The state has a total number of 1,81,91,228 people as general electors while 1,07,486 are enrolled as Service Voters taking the final electoral rolls to 1,82,98,714 who will exercise their right to franchise in 19,425 polling stations.

Results in the last four elections: Congress candidate Bhajan Lal Bishnoi won the 2000 and 2005 elections in Adampur and served as the Chief Minister of Haryana. In 2008, bypolls were conducted after Bishnoi’s disqualification for joining the HJC(BL). Bishnoi, however, won again for a record tenth time. In 2009, HJC (BL)’s Kuldeep Bishnoi, the son of Bhajan Lal Bishnoi, won by defeating Congress candidate Nihal Singh. By-elections were held in 2011 as Kuldeep Bishnoi became an MP from Hisar Lok Sabha constituency. His wife, Renuka Bishnoi, defeated Congress candidate Kulvir Singh Beniwal by securing almost double the votes. Beniwal contested as an INLD candidate in 2014 and lost to Kuldeep Bishnoi.

Demographics: The politics of Adampur, particularly the Vidhan Sabha, is mostly dominated by the Bishnoi family. Located on the fringes of the Haryana-Rajasthan border, the constituency is also referred to as Mandi Adampur.
