Polling began on a dull note for 13 Lok Sabha and 104 Assembly constituencies in the second and final phase of elections in Karnataka with 10 to 15 per cent votes being cast in the first two hours this morning.

Voting began on a moderate note in Mandya, Mysore and Hassan and was dull in Mangalore, Canara and Dharwad, reports said.

Snags in Electronic Voting Machines delayed voting in some booths, including in Mangalore and there were complaints of missing of voters names in some other places, including Hassan.

Polling had remained peaceful so far under the watchful eyes of some 34,000 security personnel.

The poll fortunes of former prime minister H D Devegowda who is contesting from Hassan, apart from Kanakapura, and former chief ministers M Veerappa Moily (Mangalore) and S Bangarappa (Shimoga) would be decided today.

In the first phase, 120 assembly segments and 15 Lok Sabha constituencies went to polls.
