As many as 1,232 voters out of a total of 2,517 cast their votes today in the re-poll at three booths in two Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai. The re-polling was ordered by Election Commission due to technical reasons.

Suburban District Collector Shekhar Channe said a voter turnout of 48.94% was registered at two booths in Mumbai North and one in Mumbai North Central Lok Sabha constituencies. "Out of the 1,232 who voted again, 668 were men and 564 women. In Malad booth number 242, 351 people voted which included 200 men and 151 women, with the turnout of 35.41%.

Channe said the voter turnout was 55.93% in Chandivali. Polling in all six Parliamentary constituencies was held in Mumbai on April 24 along with remaining 19 Lok Sabha seats across Maharashtra in the final phase.

Meanwhile, in Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat, repolling was held in Hiradgao polling booth of Srigonda Assembly segment. 736 voters out of the total 1154 voted there, including 411 men and 325 women. The polling in Ahmedngar was held on April 17.

The Election Commission had ordered re-poll at four booths spread across three Lok Sabha constituencies citing non-clearance of votes cast during mock polls, as it had a bearing on the actual numbers reflected in the EVMs.
