Technical snags disrupt polling

The polling is by and large peaceful in the five Lok Sabha constituencies where fate of 51 voters are sealed in EVMs.

Polling was summarily disrupted where at least 33 electronic voting machines malfunctioned in Dibrugarh, Kaliabor, Tezpur and Lakhimpur constituencies.

Of them, 29 were later replaced. The snags in the others voting machines were rectified and the voting continued uninterrupted till the end.
