Mumbai: Aurangabad records 6.71% voter turnout till 9 am Over 6.7 percent voters came out to vote in the nine Assembly constituencies of the district.

However, the Opposition parties — the Congress, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), or even the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) — are unlikely to benefit as they have their own share of troubles in the constituency, believe political observers, sources reported.
