For the 2019 general elections of Kasaragod, a total of 78% voters got inked.

In what qualifies as a great political thriller, Rajmohan Unnithan of Indian National Congress defeated Communist Party of India (Marxist)'s K. P. Sathishchandran by a margin of 40,438. After a close shave, Rajmohan Unnithan will now govern Kasaragod for the next five years.
