Thushar Vellappally, NDA candidate from Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency, on Tuesday, demanded re-polling after an electronic voting machine (EVM) malfunctioned at a polling booth here.
“Let me draw your kind attention to an important matter. It is reported from booth number 79 - CMS Higher Secondary School, Arappatta in Mooppanad Panchayath that the voting machine is damaged. A vote is not being cast even after pressing twice,” a letter by Vellappally through Chief Election Agent Advocate Sinil Kumar G read. “Please take necessary steps for re-polling as pressing the voting machine twice can make changes in the voting,” it added.
