66.25 pc voting in civic polls

Bangalore: Mar 9, 2013

An estimated 66.25 per cent of the voters cast their votes in the elections to 208 urban local bodies (ULBs) held on Thursday, according to the final statistics made available by the State Election Commission on Friday.

Bangalore Rural district tops the list with 76.7 pc voter turnout. However, the SEC had erroneously given this distinction to Tumkur on Thursday. At the bottom of the table is Gulbarga district, where 55.42 pc of the total voters exercised their franchise. The SEC has ordered repolling in one ward of Tumkur on Saturday, as there were errors in the voters’ list.
