The bypolls are scheduled on Surajgarh, Weir, Kota (South) and Nasirabad Assembly constituencies on September 13. The elections were necessitated after the MLAs representing the Assembly seats were elected to the Lok Sabha after the parliamentary polls.

BJP Legislators Sanwar Lal Jat, Om Birla, Santosh Ahlawat and Bahadur Singh Koli represented Nasirabad, Kota (South), Surajgarh and Weir Assembly constituencies respectively before they were elected to the Lok Sabha.
