In Rajasthan, there were 30 complaints about EVMs within the first 40 minutes of polling, which started at 7am, as voters queued outside booths in the 13 or the 25 constituencies of the desert state.

An EVM in booth number 42 stopped working in Deoli under the Tonk-Sawai Madhopur constituency resulting in a delay in voting. Reports about a glitch in an EVM in Ajmer district’s Bhinai also came in.
