Heavy turnout in repolling in TN, Kerala
Chennai/Thiruvananthapuram: Over 80 per cent
voters exercised their franchise in repolling in eight polling
booths in Tamil Nadu and two in Kerala on Saturday.
The repoll was ordered in view of malfunctioning of EVMs
at some places and minor skirmishes in certain areas during
the Assembly polls in both states on April 13.
In Tamil Nadu, 81.3 per cent of voters cast their votes in
eight polling booths in six constituencies, while in Kerala,
80.5 and 72.28 per cent exercised their franchise, Election
Commission sources in both states said.
