The Election Commission will conduct re-poll in a booth falling under Tenkasi constituency as votes polled during a mock drill were not erased prior to polling.

A mock poll was conducted at booth No 56, Arulmigu Ponnambalam Middle School in Tenkasi segment before polling on Monday.

"As the votes cast by people during the polls (that were conducted on Monday) were recorded without erasing the votes registered during mock poll, it has been decided to conduct re-polling in that booth," an official release said on Tuesday.

As per the recommendation of the Election Officer, re-polling would be held in that booth on May 18, between 7 am and 6 pm.

Tirunelveli District Collector C Samayamoorthy has appealed to the voters falling under the constituency to cast their votes tomorrow, it added.
