MCD Elections 2017: 54% voter turnout recorded, AAP alleges faulty EVMs

According To India Vote Kar
Delhi municipal elections on Sunday recorded a turnout of around 54%, amid complaints of faulty EVMs by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

Following a sluggish start at 8am, voting in the elections to the Municipal Corporations of Delhi (MCD) gradually picked up and became fairly brisk as the heat waned towards the evening.

The 2012 MCD elections had registered a 53.23 per cent turnout. The polling passed off peacefully.

State election commissioner S.K. Srivastava told a press conference that North corporation’s Bakhtawarpur ward recorded the highest turnout at over 68%, while South Delhi’s Lado Sarai registered the least turnout at 39%. He said 18 electronic voting machines (EVMs) were replaced owing to battery- or button-related issues.
