Barring a few stray incidents of MCC (model code of conduct) violations and “a couple of other scattered incidents of impersonation”, the polling remained peaceful and no untoward incident of any kind was reported from anywhere, the SEC said in a statement on Sunday night.

According to data shared by the SEC on Monday, 51.03 per cent of the male voters exercised their franchise while 49.83 per cent of female electorate voted in the crucial civic polls.

Authorities had set up 13,638 polling stations across Delhi for the exercise.
