The 2024 Lok Sabha Elections in Tamil Nadu are set to conclude on the opening day of the elections, with all 39 seats in the state scheduled for polling on April 19.

Known for its efficient election process, Tamil Nadu saw all seats being contested in a single phase during the 2019 elections, a trend that continues in the 2024 polls. This singular phase of polling is the largest among all states, showcasing the state's commitment to expeditious electoral procedures.

Tamil Nadu, the southernmost state of India, holds the fifth-highest number of Lok Sabha seats, with a total of 39 seats. Among these, 32 seats are unreserved, while seven are reserved for SC candidates. In the 2019 elections, the DMK-led Secular Progressive Alliance secured a landslide victory, clinching 38 out of the 39 seats, leaving only one seat for the largest party in the nation.
