This is the first time that transgenders are casting their votes under the category after the Supreme Court had declared them as the "third gender" in 2014. Earlier they had to cast their votes as male or female.
Excited about casting their votes under their chosen gender identity for the first time in general elections, the transgender voters in the national capital flaunted their inked fingers and expressed hope for a government which ensures them a better future.
According to Delhi Chief Electoral Officer, a total of 660 transgenders were eligible to cast their vote besides 78,49,947 male and 64,21,283 female voters.
