Ranchi: Some people turned up early at polling booths across Jharkhand's four parliamentary constituencies that voted Thursday.

The state saw 13 percent polling by 9 a.m., said an election commission official.

Polling for the third and final phase of polls in Jharkhand began at 7 a.m. and it ends at 4 p.m. in the four Lok Sabha constituencies of Dhanbad, Dumka, Rajmahal and Godda.

Dhanbad registered 16.38 percent polling while Rajmahal saw a voter turnout of 17 percent.

In 2009, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won three of the four seats, while the JMM had won the Dumka seat.

An electorate of over 61 lakh will decide the fate of 72 candidates.

Polling is taking place at 7,489 polling stations, of which 2,439 have been categorized as sensitive and 1,154 as highly sensitive.
