Breaking all records, Delhi registered the highest-ever voter turnout of 65.13 per cent in the keenly contested Assembly polls. Men and women came out in almost equal numbers to exercise their franchise, the Delhi's Election Commission said on Thursday.
The last time the capital recorded an above 60 per cent voting was in the 1993 Assembly elections. In the 2008 Assembly polls, the overall voting percentage was 57.58.
Of the 1.19 crore eligible voters, over 77.7 lakh people exercised their franchise on Wednesday. The number of first-time eligible voters is 4.05 lakh. The highest turnout was recorded in the Seemapuri seat (72.19 per cent), while the lowest polling was in Ballimaran with 56.20 per cent.
