Thiruvananthapuram: When Kerala goes to polls on April 23, the largest group of voters from the southern state will be in the age group of 30 to 39, said a poll official on Monday.

Of those eligible to exercise their franchise in the second phase of the staggered process -- 1,31,11,189 are women, 1,22,97,403 men and 119 transgenders.

The 30 to 39 age group would constitute 56,92,670 electorates, while 2,61,778 will be first time voters aged 18-19. There are 20 Lok Sabha seats from Kerala.

Speaking to the media here Chief Electoral Officer Tikka Ram Meena said the electoral list is based on January 30 figures available with the poll body.

Details of another two lakh new voters are being processed, he added.

The final list will be out before the last date of withdrawal of nominations, which is April 8, said Meena.

The Malappuram seat has the largest number of voters (13,40,547), closely followed by Pathanamthitta (13,40,193), while the least are from Idukki (11,76,099).

There will be 24,970 polling stations in Kerala -- up from 24,500 in the 2014 polls.

In rural areas the maximum number of voters in a booth has been fixed at 1,200, while it is 1,400 for urban areas.

"We also are having 35 per cent more number of polling machines, keeping emergencies in mind," he said.
