Chauhan said the highest polling was recorded at the Buhana polling station where 88.24 per cent cast their vote. The polling station of Bhakera had the lowest voter turnout as a mere 53.50 per cent cast their vote.

Though polling passed off smoothly, some problem was faced by voters at some polling stations as the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) and Voter Verified Printed Audit Trial (VVPAT) machines developed snags. As a result, voting had to be halted at 16 polling stations for a few minutes to replace the VVPAT. The EVMs developed snags at four polling stations, including Buhana, Bhakera, Kakera and Chamboh.Upender Nath Shukla, Tehsildar, Election, said there was minor interruptions due to VVPAT and EVMs but these were replaced within a few minutes and the polling resumed.

Former Chief Minister and Leader of the Opposition PK Dhumal, whose native place Samirpur falls in the Bhoranj constituency, cast his vote with his wife Sheela Dhumal. His son and Hamirpur Lok Sabha MP Anurag Thakur, younger son Arun Dhumal and their wives also cast their vote.

BJP candidate Anil Dhiman, accompanied by his wife and two sons and other family members, cast his vote at the Bhoranj polling station in the morning. Similarly, Parmila Devi, along with her family members voted at the Nagrota polling station.


Voting pattern in favour of BJP: Dhumal Hamirpur:  Former Chief Minister PK Dhumal on Sunday said the people had made up their mind to rid the state of the Congress rule and a beginning would be made from Bhoranj. Talking to the media after casting his vote, Dhumal said the outcome of the Bhoranj bypoll would become the benchmark for the Assembly polls. He said Bhoranj was a BJP stronghold and this time the seat would be won with a bigger margin. He said the polling pattern in the constituency clearly indicated that the BJP candidate Dr Anil Dhiman would win the election comfortably. When asked about the dent that the rebels, both from the BJP and the Congress, would make into the traditional party vote bank, he said it may be damaging for the Congress but it would not make much of a difference to the BJP.
