The average polling percentage of 77.15 in 2019 was so high compared to 74.02 per cent recorded in 2014 Lok Sabha elections in Kerala. Pathanamthita, the epicentre of Sabarimala issue, recorded considerable increase in polling, registering 74.05 per cent as against 65.84 per cent that recorded in 2014.

Thiruvananthapuram seat also recorded a high turnout of 73.26 per cent as against 68.64 recorded in the previous Lok Sabha election. Thrissur constituency was the another place where unpredictable results are awaiting. An estimated 77.19 per cent of voters cast their votes as against 72.21 per cent in 2014. Wayanad, from where Congress President Rahul Gandhi seek his second mandate after Amethi, recorded high turnout of 80.85 per cent, as against 73.26 per cent in 2014. The poll percentage of other constituencies are as follows.

Except a few complaints of technical snag in Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) and a few violent incidents, by and large the polling was peaceful.

As many as 227 candidates were in the fray to 20 Lok Sabha seats from Kerala. Right from the morning it was seen that large number of women turned out for casting their votes leading to the high turnout of polling this time. According to political observers, there were two reasons behind the high turnout of electorates, the controversial Sabarimala issue and the candidature of Rahul Gandhi from the Wayanad constituency.
