But unlike previous elections, the party did not register a landslide victory.
DMK chief Karunanidhi explained that the vote share was very close – 39.7 per cent of votes for DMK and 40.8 per cent for AIADMK.
It was back in 2011 that the Election Commission had introduced the NOTA button, giving voters the option to nullify their votes and not choose any of the candidates that were representing their ward.
The figure clearly shows that both parties didn’t see the fact that there were high number of people who had lost their faith in the present voting system.

At that time too as many as 5,82,062 voters that 1.4 per cent voters in Tamil Nadu had opted for this option.
High time people understand that having no one to vote, doesn’t mean you vote for the wrong person or not vote at all.
