The balloting started at 8 am and will run until 4 pm at Iqbal Nagar Secondary School under ward-24, Labanchara Government Primary School under ward-31 and Ward-31 Councillor Office.

The Election Commission has taken strict security measures to hold the voting in a free, fair and peaceful manner.

It has assigned new presiding officers and assistant presiding officers for the three polling centres.

Earlier on May 15, the voting in the three centres was postponed for snatching of ballot papers and forced stuffing.
