Internet Slammed Chennai Voters For The Less Percentage Comparing To All The Districts !!


On Tuesday, the Polling in 234 constituencies went off peacefully with a voter turn out of 71.79 per cent at the end of the 12 hours. Kallakurichi district topped the list with a voter turn out of 78 % followed by Namakkal and Ariyalur where 77.9 % and 77.8 % of voters appeared to register their votes to choose their leader.

Among the minor scuffles among cadres and glitches in the electronic voting machines in some parts of the state, what disappointed people the most is the lowest number of people casting their vote from the capital of the state. It is reported that only 59.4 % people from Chennai city made their presence in the polling stations to cast their vote on the day which was declared as a public holiday.


The city grabbed the last spot among the 38 districts and people from other district already started criticizing the Chennaites who missed to perform their basic duty. A number of celebrities from film industry and political personalities have also expressed their dejection over the people of the state who are regularly showing poor results in voting percentage.

“Wondering what 40% of Chennai was doing without going out to vote today.” questioned singer Chinmayi in her tweet whereas a twitter user uploaded a news of an elderly man casting his vote despite of his wife’s demise and questioned what Chennai voters were doing without voting.

Check out some of the reactions below :

However, it is believed that a sum of Chennai voters residing in abroad and the double voter ID holders who vote in their home town could be the reason behind the constant fall in vote percentage in Chennai. COVID 19 outbreak and the Chennai weather are also being stated as prominent reasons. But that doesn’t deny the fact that many people failed to do their duty despite of having the polling stations nearer to their residents.
