Jammu and Kashmir is going to witness a hung assembly, as no party was able to garner a full majority. BJP that fought the elections on its Mission 44 failed to attain it but was successful in garnering more than double of its seats. BJP in 2001 won only one seat in the state and 11 seats in 2008.

National Conference (NC) leader and outgoing Chief Minister Omar Adbullah lost Sonawar but managed to win Beerwah after a tough fight against PDP's Nazir Ahmad Khan.

In 2008 Jammu and Kashmir elections the NC had won 28 seats, Congress 17, PDP 21, BJP 11, Panthers' Party 3 and CPM had one. The independents had bagged six seats.

The elections were held in five phases starting from 25 November to 20 December 2014. Of 87 seats 7 seats were reserved for SC candidates. J&K Assembly’s tenure is of 6 years, while of other 28 states the assembly tenure is 5 years only.

The Election Commission of India held the elections in lieu of expiry of the Legislative Assemblies of Jammu and Kashmir, which was supposed to expire on 19 January 2015. The Election Commission of India conducted the elections in the state under the power, duties and functions assigned to it under Article 324 read with Article 172(1) of the Constitution of India and Section 15 of Representation of the People Act, 1951.
