Panaji (Goa) [India], Feb. 7 (ANI): A 78-year old wheelchair-bound woman on Tuesday cast her vote as the re-polling is underway in Goa's Margao. "It is every citizen's duty to vote," said the old woman. The re-polling is underway at polling booth number eight in Margao constituency. The Election Commission of India (ECI) earlier on Sunday ordered for re-polling for the polling station no. eight of Margao constituency of South Goa. The re-polling was recommended in the station as voting was cancelled due to faulty procedure. As of now, the Goa Assembly elections saw a record voter turnout of 83 percent. It was also said that for the first time, 100 percent use of electronically transmitted postal ballot system was done in the state. (ANI)
