Polling in the Vellore Lok Sabha constituency in Tamil Nadu is progressing steadily with 29.46 per cent votes polled till 1 p.m. on Monday, according to the Election Commission (EC). The polling began at 7 a.m.
While 28 candidates are in the fray, the main contest is between A.C. Shanmugam of the AIADMK and D.M. Kathir Anand of the DMK.
The constituency was to go to polls on April 18, but the voting was put off after Rs 10 crore was seized from the DMK leaders in the Vellore district.
