Elections 2019: 66% Voting In Phase 3, 1 Killed In Violence In Bengal

The third and largest phase of the national election witnessed a drop in poll percentage, with only 66 per people turning out to vote. Polling across 117 seats in 13 states and two Union Territories was marred by complaints of glitches in Electronic Voting Machines and violence in several states, in which a man died. The whole of Gujarat and Kerala and half of Karnataka voted today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who cast his vote from Gujarat this morning, held a mini road show and made a political speech, for which the Election Commission has sought a report. “I can say with surety that the voter ID is much much more powerful than an IED,” he had said. The last of the seven-phase election will be held on May 19, the counting is scheduled for May 23.
