The re-poll was necessitated as the 712 voters of this polling booth cast their votes in the EVM meant for the Tura Lok Sabha seat poll, instead of the one for the Assembly by-poll on April 11.
The bypoll to Selsella constituency, part of the Tura parliamentary seat in the Garo Hills area in western Meghalaya, was necessitated by the death of sitting Congress legislator Clement Marak on October 8, 2018.
Marak's widow June Eliana R. Marak is contesting the bypoll on the Congress ticket against the ruling National Peoples Party's Ferlin C.A. Sangma, the United Democratic Party's Sayeedullah Nongrum and the Bharatiya Janata Party's Adorsho Sangma.
