Delhi Exit Poll Result 2020 Date: Fate of 70-member Assembly to be extrapolated at 6.30 pm tomorrow

As voting in Delhi comes to end, all eyes are now set on the Delhi 2020 election exit poll results. Counting of votes will take place on 11 February. Exit polls to 70 Assembly constituencies in the National Capital will be announced on Saturday (8 February) after 6.30 pm. The Election Commission (EC) has imposed a complete ban on exit polls during polling in Delhi. Many news agencies are expected to publish the Delhi Assembly Election 2020 exit poll as soon as the voting ends.

The Election Commission had issued a notification restricting media to conduct or publish any exit poll during Assembly elections in Delhi on 8 February. The ban will be on polling day between 8 am to 6.30 pm, the commission said.
