In another eleven booths, repolling had been ordered because polling officials had permitted voters, whose name had been deleted from the electoral rolls, to vote, it said.

The state recorded a polling percentage of 60.56 on Monday. Nagapattinam Lok Sabha constituency recorded the highest voter turn out with 71.49 per cent and Chennai North recorded the lowest with 46.15 per cent.

Meanwhile, all the EVMs, which had recorded the polling, had been kept in safe custody in the respective counting centres. Central Paramilitary forces were keeping vigil at the counting centres, official sources said.
