Ranbir Singh, Delhi's chief electoral officer (CEO), dismissed allegations that the release of the final turnout data has been delayed, and announced on Sunday that 62.59% of the registered voters voted in the Delhi elections on Saturday have.
“Whenever data arrives from the 13,780 polling stations at night [data point] is added and then an exact number is given that can be divided, ”said Deputy Electoral Commissioner Sandeep Saxena. “Every data element and every voter was taken into account. That takes time … There can be no question of being late. It is a process. And when it's done, it's shared. "
Mr. Singh said that the polls ran well after 6:00 p.m. at several stands in the city. Thereafter, EVMs were placed in strong rooms and the review of the data began at 11:00 p.m. in some constituencies. "Our returning officers were busy all night and then did some research … We have to appreciate it … we have to be careful. And I think it happened in time, ”he said.
Mr. Singh also emphasized that the data for each constituency had already been passed on to candidates through their election officers, which means that they "cannot be manipulated".
However, the officials were unable to reveal the number of votes cast after 6:00 p.m. or the number of cabins that were queried after the deadline. They said the data would be "rejected" and later shared.
Overall, the lowest turnout at 45.4% was in Delhi Cantonment. The highest value was in Balimaran with 71.6%.
