While election trends will start pouring in within a few minutes, the final result can be delayed by up to five hours this time around after the Supreme Court instructed the Election Commission of India (ECI) to also consider the Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) slips tally.

The VVPAT slips of at least five EVMs per assembly segment in a Lok Sabha constituency will be counted and the tallying of votes will take place only after the last round of counting.
