"I reached the polling station at 8 AM. However, I could not vote as the EVM was not working so I had to leave due to some urgent work. I will go later to cast my vote," Lovely said. There were also complaints of faulty EVMs in North Delhi Burari area and South West Delhi's Kapashera due to which voting had to be stopped for a few minutes. "There were few complaints of the functioning of EVMs at Burari and Kapashera which has been rectified," an official source said.
Apart from this, at GTB ward, voters had to face problems as some EVMs were not functioning properly. Some people could not vote because their names were missing from the voters list.
