Polling for First Phase of Assembly Elections in Jharkhand Begins

For the first phase of five-phased assembly elections in Jharkhand, voting started at 7 am in morning today under air surveillance and tight security, said state election commission sources.

In the chilly morning, with mercury hovering around 9 degree Celsius, electorates were seen queuing up in front of different polling booths in all the 26 assembly constituencies that are going to vote today.

A total of 470 candidates, including 34 women, are in the fray with 6,532,234 voters to cast votes between 7 am to 3 pm. The opening and closing time for the polling has been advanced in view of the Naxal threats and poll boycott announced by the left wing extremists in the constituencies.
