Karnataka's Chikkballapur is one of the 28 Lok Sabha constituencies of the state.

As per the last census report, Chikkballapur houses 21,70,097 people. Out of them, 21.89% of voters belong to Scheduled Caste category while 7.82% belong to Scheduled Tribes category. Moreover, 29.15% of voters are from urban areas while 70.85% voters stay in rural areas.

In the last elections, INC's sitting MP M Veerappa Moily defeated BN Bachhegouda of BJP by a small margin of 9,520 votes.

The voter turnout recorded was 76%.

In what qualifies as a great political thriller, B.N.Bache Gowda of Bharatiya Janata Party defeated Indian National Congress's M.Veerappa Moily by a margin of 182,110. After a close shave, B.N.Bache Gowda will now govern Chikkballapur for the next five years.

Bahujan Samaj Party fieled Dr. CS Dwarakanath while the Bharatiya Janata Party placed its bet on BN Bache Gowda, and the Indian National Congress chose M Veerappa Moily as their candidate.
