And Savli, where the repoling is held in two booths, namely- Nhara 1 and Sakarda 7 booths respectively.
The re-polling is conducted for the second phase of Gujarat Legislative Assembly Elections. The Legislative Assembly Elections in Gujarat were held in two phases on December 8, 2017 and December 14, 2017 respectively.
The reasons for this re-polling is cited to be certain technical faults and glitches and hence fresh rounds of voting are inevitable.
