Bhubaneswar: Voting at booth no 196 in Baramba Assembly segment under Cuttack Parliamentary constituency in Cuttack district was adjourned after mispairing error was noticed.
As per allegations, button pressed against one symbol was resulting in votes for another symbol.
According to the Chief Electoral Officer, during the process of the VVPAT of the booth number 196 was changed after commencement of the poll due to some error. By that time, a total of 134 votes had been polled. Later, the Sector Officer reached the booth with new VVPAT machine to replace the old one. During replacement, he wrongly attached the machine with the ballot unit meant for Assembly election.
Later, the CEO adjourned the polling in the booth immediately. A fresh poll will be held there.
