Nearly 76 per cent polling was recorded today in six booths of three Lok Sabha constituencies in Assam where repolling was ordered due to EVM malfunctioning.     

Jorhat registered 74 per cent turnout, Dibrugarh 74.8 per cent and Tezpur 74.6 per cent with the voters peacefully exercising their franchise, Election office sources said.

In Jorhat, repolling was held in booth no. 38 in Sensua Gaon LP school, booth no. 61 in Khargarh LP School, booth no. 5 in Pukuhuria LP School and booth no. 84 in Bahboria LP School (West), the sources said.           

In Tezpur, repolling was held in election booth no. 86 in Borgang High School (South), while in Dibrugarh repolling was in booth no. 122 in Laina LP school.          

The Election Commission had ordered repolling in the six booths of the three constituencies as the electorate there on April 7 could not cast their vote due to malfunctioning of EVMs.        

Voting in the three seats was held along with two other constituencies of Lakhimpur and Koliabor on April 7.
