The Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly election, 2017[1] was held on 15 February 2017 in a single phase for the 69 seats of the Vidhan Sabha in the state of Uttarakhand in India. Voting in the Karnaprayag constituency was postponed until the 9th March 2017 due to the death of BSP Candidate Kuldeep Kanwasi in a road accident. In the previous election in 2012, none of the parties won a majority but the Indian National Congress formed the government with the help of PDF in the leadership of Vijay Bahuguna.

The voter turnout for the 69 seats of Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly that held on 15 February was 65.64%[2] which is less than the last election's voter turnout of 67.62%.
