Karnataka Voters Set New Record, 72.13% Exercise Franchise In Assembly Election

Karnataka Voters Set New Record, 72.13% Exercise Franchise In Assembly Election”

Except for candidates, agents who have authorised passes from respective political parties and media persons, the counting centres will be out of bounds for the public.

The situation around the centre is said to be under control; however, the election-governing body, earlier, noted that a marginal percentage of Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) and Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) failures has been reported. BJP left no stone unturned during the campaign as Party president Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were themselves at the helm of things.

The other district with a below-par turnout was Gulbarga in northern Karnataka, where only 56.03 percent of the population voted in the Assembly election, a significant drop from the corresponding figure for 2013, when 63.75 percent did. The repolling was necessitated due to technical errors on May 12, when polling was held across the 222 constituencies that went to vote. ".at this rate, 2019 Lok Sabha poll expenditure estimate is Rs 50,000-60,000 crore against Rs 30,000 crore expenditure involved in 2014", according to N Bhaskara Rao of the CMS.

The counting of votes and the results of 222 of 224 constituencies of Karnataka Assembly election will be declared today.

In a women-oriented step, 450 "pink booths" called "Sakhi" have been set up.

On a pilot basis, the Election commission chose five assembly constituencies in Bengaluru - Rajarajeshwari Nagar, Shivajinagar, Shanthinagar, Gandhi Nagar and Rajaji Nagar in Bengaluru. Seizer of a hundred crores could only be symbolical.

As the outcry about the alleged vulnerability of the EVMs to tampering grew louder, the Election Commission has come up with the "M3 EVMs" that are tamper proof and stops when attempts are made to meddle with it, reports PTI.

Polling booths have been set up across the state and security have been deployed. "These were tracked and assessed from discussions", it said.
