A week after polling, the UT Election Department is still in the process of collecting data from all polling booths as there is a difference of more than 11,000 votes in the manual data and the computerised data.
The Election Department had this time started a system wherein the data of every vote was to be uploaded on the department’s website.
However, the server was unable to handle the load. Due to this, while the data was saved in computers in individual polling booths, it could not be uploaded on the website.

The data is now been collected from individual polling booths and is being uploaded. A difference of 11, 751 votes is still there in the manual and computerised data.
This indicates that data of 97.41 per cent of the votes is uploaded. As per the manual data, the total votes cast were 4,53,315, while the computerised data shows 4,41,564 votes having been cast.
It is for the first time that the Election Department has maintained data of the voters including the time the vote was cast.
The website has the provision wherein names of the voters boothwise can also be seen. The names of the young voters keeps scrolling on the screen with a message congratulating them.
UT Home Secretary-cum-Chief Electoral Officer Anil Kumar said that the data is being collected from all polling booths. “It was the first time that such an exercise was undertaken during polling in the city that data about each vote was uploaded in real time.
However, on the day of polling the data was so much that the server could not take the load. As a result there is a difference in the manual and computerised data. The department is now in the process of collecting the data,” he said.
