The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) polls on Friday witnessed a voter turnout of 73 per cent, highest in the last 12 years, according to a comparison from previous years' data. The JNUSU elections were held in two phases, which were delayed due to logistical arrangements, the election committee said. The polling was held after a four-year hiatus and over 7,700 registered electors cast their votes through a secret ballot.The counting of votes, which was supposed to commence at 9 pm, is also running past its scheduled time because of the delay in polling.After the counting of votes is completed, the JNUSU results will be declared on Sunday.Polling began at the 17 booths set up across different Centres of Studies at JNU around 11 am and continued till 7 pm. It was supposed to begin at 9 am. Supporters of different student outfits chanted slogans and cheered for their leaders as voters queued to cast their votes at their respective centres. Slogans of 'Jai Bheem', 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai', and 'Lal Salam' along with beats of drum rented the air as a large number of students started flocking the polling booths after 11 am.
