Mizoram polls: Officials estimate 82.43% turnout

Aizawl:  Including votes cast through postal ballots, the total voters’ turnout in the elections to the 40-seat Mizoram assemble held on November 7 is estimated to be 82.43 per cent.

The poll turnout, including re-polling held on Friday was 80.66 per cent. 

State election department officials, however, said that the total poll turnout will only be known on the day of counting as postal ballots are not polled through the electronic voting machines (EVMs). 

“Votes polled by service voters can be received till the commencement of the counting of votes,” one official said.

Re-polling in Muallungthu polling station falling under Aizawl South-3 assembly seat was held on Friday when 87.08 per cent vote was polled. 

Repolling in this polling station was necessitated by non-deletion of votes polled during mock poll conducted by the polling officials and using the same EVM for polling of the voters.

Meanwhile, officials said that the oldest voter who exercised franchise in the recently conduded Mizoram election is Famiangi (115) who casted her vote at Pangkhua polling station within Lawngtlai East assembly constituency on November 7.

Leaders of Pangkhua village said that Famiangi was always an enthusiastic elector who always wanted to exercise franchise in all the elections.
