DOOMDOOMA: Polling in 15 gaon panchayats (GP) under Doomdooma Legislative Assembly Constituency (LAC) and 24 GPs under Sadiya LAC was by and large peaceful and the percentage of votes was around 55 per cent to 65 per cent. The polling process was delayed because of use of ballot papers and in some centres the polling continued up to 6.30 pm, well beyond the schedule time of 3 pm.

There were disturbances as some names were missing from the electoral rolls and consequently polling had to be stopped in some centres like Haloutop under Hatijan GP, Khobong Mazdoor line and Khobong Mazdoor Club under Khobong GP for some time. It is also alleged that in some centres ballot papers with discrepancies in the names of the candidate and party symbols were distributed.
