AIZAWL, December 3, 2018: Polling personnel on Sunday headed for Ajasora polling station in southernmost Tuichawng assembly constituency where re-polling is scheduled on Tuesday, election department officials said.
Ajasora village, dominated by the Chakma community, is around 150 km from Lawngtlai town, from where the poll personnel began their journey on Sunday.
The repoll was ordered by the Election Commission as polling could not be completed due to technical snags in the electronic voting machines (EVMs) on the polling day of November 28. Over 300 voters could not cast their vote in the polling station due to persistent EVM snag. The 1,080 voters in Ajasora polling station would again cast their vote on Tuesday.
State election department officials said that 101 Voter verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) were replaced while 46 units each of EVM postal and ballot units were substituted during the polling in the state on November 28.
