Will Election takes place when I add a low priority node

Hi ,
When I reconfig the replica set with a new member added with low priority will it cause election ?

Hi @Sri_Sai_Ram_Akam,

Welcome to the MongoDB Community forums :sparkles:

The answer will be No. The election algorithm will make a “best-effort” attempt to have the secondary with the highest priority available.

I hope it helps!

Thanks,
