The compilation of the data was delayed because officials had difficulties with the application.

Chennai District recorded an average turnout of 59.06 percent in Tuesday’s assembly elections, according to revised data compiled by the district election office.

Of the 40.57 lakh voters, 23.95 lakh voted in the 16 constituencies.

Data compilation was delayed because 350 election officials did not know how to use an app to generate turnout data from many voting booths in the city.

Most polling stations in northern Chennai registered a higher turnout as polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
