The north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh voted simultaneously in the Lok Sabha elections 2019 and the Legislative Assembly election on April 11. The hill state has two Lok Sabha seats and 60 Assembly constituencies.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, led by Chief Minister Pema Khandu.
In 2014, the Congress had emerged victorious after winning 42 seats. The BJP came second with 11 seats. The People's Party of Arunachal (PPA) managed to win five seats while two Independents also won.
