Polling was peaceful, save stray incidents of violence. Three persons were seriously injured when supporters of two rival parties clashed outside a polling booth in Pipsorang in the Tali Assembly constituency in Kurung Kumey district, an election official said.
Police officials said the injured were taken to hospital by a helicopter.
"The voting percentage recorded so far is 66 per cent. We are expecting that the voting percentage may touch 70 pe rcent as we are yet to received the final figures from all the districts," Additional Chief Electoral Officer Kangki Darang said.
"There are many polling stations where it take one or two days to reach the district headquarters while some of the polling officials have to be airlifted since they are deployed in inaccessible areas," he said.
Darang also said that polling was not conducted in around 15 polling stations due defective EVMS which couldn't be replaced in time besides other reasons.
There are 7,98,249 voters in the state and 2,202 polling stations.
Arunachal Pradesh is undergoing simultaneous polls.

Three BJP candidates -- Phurpa Tsering from Dirang, Taba Tedir from Yachuli and Kento Jini from Along East -- won elections unopposed after either other contestants withdrew or their candidature was rejected.
In the Lok Sabha polls, Union Minister Kiren Rijju, seeking re-election for the third time from Arunachal West, faced former Chief Minister Nabam Tuki of the Congress, National People Party's Khyoda Apik and Jarjum Ete of the JD-S.
