Voting for around 1,145 village panchayats was held peacefully across Gujarat with results scheduled to be announced on today, officials said. Total of over 22.5 lakh voters were eligible to vote.
Around 73 per cent voters cast their votes across 33 districts till 4 pm, and the final figure was likely to go up, an official of the State Election Commission said
As many as 218 village Panchayats were declared “Samras” after the villages chose their sarpanch and ward members through consensus, the official informed.
Voting in one booth at a village in Chhota Udepur district was suspended after the candidates complained that their election symbols were missing from the EVM. Village panchayats elections are not fought on party symbols.
