The civic election was earlier scheduled to be held in 105 Urban Local Bodies, but polls in three of them - Somwarpet, Virajpet and Kushalnagar - had to be postponed due to heavy rains and flash floods in Kodagu district. Several residents have been living in relief camps after their houses were severely damaged in the floods.
