NEW DELHI: Repolling for the West Bengal panchayat elections will be done on July 10 in all booths where voting has been declared void, the State Election Commission (SEC) said on Sunday.
Repolling will be held in Nadia Purulia, Malda, Murshidabad, BirbhumJalpaiguri as well as North and South 24 Parganas in West Bengal.

The SEC, which held a meeting on Sunday evening, went through reports of vote-tampering and violence which affected polling in many places, and passed the order, an official said.

Among districts where repolling was announced, Murshidabad has the highest number of booths at 175, followed by Malda with 112.
Violence-hit Nadia will see repolling in 89 booths, while North and South 24 Parganas districts will witness repolling in 46 and 36 booths respectively.
