Naval Base poll turnout cause for worry


With Ernakulam constituency witnessing a tight three-cornered poll battle, the candidates are keen to ensure voters turn out in large numbers. But the situation at three booths in the constituency is causing concern among candidates.

Polling booths 120, 121 and 122 located at Kendriya Vidyalaya in Kochi Naval Base had recorded the lowest polling percentage during 2016 assembly polls. As per reports of EC, only 272 of the 1,663 registered voters at booth number 120 exercised their franchise in 2016. The polling percentage was a meagre 16.36. In 2011, it was just 53 per cent.
