*The election was held in five of the six provinces at four-day intervals beginning on 9 March 1970. The sixth province, Atakora, was scheduled to vote on 29 March, but the military government postponed and later annulled the election under the pretext of growing political violence and electoral irregularities. Atakora had approximately 190,000 registered voters and similar to Borgou, was expected to vote overwhelmingly for Hubert Maga.
