There are a total of 3,05,392 voters in Vijaynagara constituency that include general voters, NRI voters and service voters. Amongst the general voters 1,60,151 are male, 1,45,099 female and 136 others. The electorate sex ratio in the constituency is 90.6 and the approximate literacy rate is 87%.

In the 2018 assembly elections, this seat was won by INC candidate Anand Singh. 

The Karnataka by-elections were necessitated after the disqualification of 17 rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs, whose rebellion led to the collapse of the HD Kumaraswamy-led coalition government in July and paved the way for the BJP to come to power. The BJP needs to win at least six of the 15 seats to remain in majority in the 225-member assembly.
