Ganderbal, Kashmir, Nov 23 (UNI) Two women centurions were among a dozen elderly voters, who turned up for polling here early while first timers were also seen eager to cast their ballots for development and peace.

However, the minus two degree minimum temperature this morning delayed polling in several booths as the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) were not functioning due to lack of heating arrangements.

An 111-year-old Omar Jan was the oldest voter to cast his vote in 16-Thuni booth in Kangan Assembly constituency.

Mian Mohammad Isaaq came on horseback, covering a distance of five km to cast his vote at Hari Ganwan where two other centurions took part in the polling.

At Waniyaram, Moulvi Abdul Rehman who is hard of hearing and has weak eyesight cast his vote, while a physically handicapped person walked a distance of three km to cast his vote at Thuni polling station.
