The Election Commission on Thursday ordered repoll at a booth in the Chandni Chowk parliamentary constituency, officials said on Thursday. 

The Chief Electoral Office of Delhi had submitted a report to the EC asking for a repoll in polling station number 32 after the presiding officer forgot to delete the 'test votes' that were cast during the mock poll before actual polling commenced at 7 am on May 12, they said.

The repoll will be conducted on Sunday from 7 am to 6 pm and voters will be distributed voter slips. There are about 300 houses that fall under the polling station, they added.

Officials had reported the non-deletion of test votes at two polling stations but the report found that a repoll was needed only in one polling station.
