Bhopal, Nov 27 (UNI) More than 60 per cent of a 3.63-crore electorate turned up for voting across 230 constituencies of Madhya Pradesh in today's Assembly polling marred by isolated violence including the gunning down of former minister and BJP candidate Sunil Nayak.

''Shajapur district recorded the highest 75 per cent voting,'' state Chief Electoral Officer J S Mathur said while quoting tentative statistics available at close of polling. Poll percentage, tentatively estimated at higher than 60 per cent, was likely to go up.

Based on incomplete data received from districts, he said the lowest 50 per cent voting was registered in tribal-dominated Shahdol and Dindori districts while 28 districts recorded over 60 per cent polling.
