High voter turnout registered in North-East

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 05 August 2020, 23:41 GMT]
The voter turnout was higher than the last two elections in district of Jaffna, according to District Secretary K. Mahesan. Similarly, high turnout was also registered in the other four districts, Ki'linochchi, Mannaar, Vavuniyaa and Mullaiththeevu in the Northern province. The polling was also above 70% in the three districts of Eastern province. The trend was unique to North-East as Vanni, Batticaloa and Jaffna seem to be the electorates where the people showed more interest than the 2015 elections.

The turnout was lower than the 2015 general elections across all the electorates in the South, according to initial data from the SL Elections Commission.

Although the occupying SL military was deployed in the streets and junctions, only SL Police was seen in the polling stations.
