Kargil- the second largest district in Ladakh observed a low voter turn out because of the foggy weather on the election day. Nevertheless, the involvement of the residents improved as the day passed. The valley remains inaccessible for most part of the year as the valley remains landlocked due to the snow accumulation. The residents have appealed the government for the opening of Kargil-Skardu road which has been kept under ignorance for long. The previous assembly polls voter turn out was nearly 75% in 2008.
