Assam: Repolling in three Assembly constituencies passes off peacefully
Re-elections held in four polling stations across three constituencies in Assam in Haflong, Ratabari and Sonai from 7 am on Tuesday passed off peacefully amid tight security arrangements.
The voter turnout by close of voting (6 pm) at the 463-Madhya Dhanehari LP School polling booth under Sonai constituency in Cachar district was the highest at 81.01 per cent while the polling percentage at the 149-Indira MV School (right) polling station under Ratabari constituency in Karimganj district was recorded at 58.67 per cent.
The polling percentage at 107A-Khothlir LP School and 107-Mualdam LP School polling stations under Haflong legislative constituency in Dima Hasao district was recorded at 66.67 per cent and 59.25 per cent respectively.
“According to the electoral rolls, there are 706 voters (in the two polling booths of Haflong LAC) of which 62.96 per cent turned out to vote,” an official statement said.
It may be recalled that voting in the four polling booths during the second phase of the state Assembly elections on April 1, 2021, was declared void by the Election Commission of India (ECI) following anomalies and EVM-related discrepancies and, subsequently, fresh polls declared.
