The computerised allocation of EVMs was done in the presence of Collector A Annadurai, election observer Sheik Ahamed, returning officer C Suresh and representatives of all the recognised political parties.
A total of 276 polling stations have been set up to facilitate voting and 317 control units and ballot units are ready for polling, Annadurai said.
