Voters might have turned out in full force across the city but electronic voting machines (EVMs) at many polling booths failed to match up to the electorate’s eagerness.
Many EVMs failed to work in the morning leading to confusion and anger among voters. At Shri Krishnaswamy College for Women in Anna Nagar, several voters, who had turned up early in the morning, returned without voting because the machines were not working.
“We waited for more than 45 minutes and then left,” said 58-year-old Kala T, who was accompanied by her husband and daughter-in-law. Kala said the
problem occurred in AB and AC Block. “There were around 200 to 300 people waiting there and many of them were shouting at the officials,” she said.
