For the first time in Haryana, Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) system, wherein a voter will be able to see a printout of the symbol of the candidate whom he has voted, would be used in the October 15 Haryana Assembly polls.
Opposition parties in Mizoram have appealed to the Election Commission that Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) be used in all polling stations in the state in the Lok Sabha poll and the by-poll to Hrangturzo Assembly.
The New Delhi constituency, which is witnessing a high-pitched electoral battle, Wednesday became the first in the capital to have a paper trail which enables voters to verify if their vote has been recorded correctly.
The performance of the VVPAT system used in the recently held Mizoram assembly election was not satisfactory, as 10 per cent of the machines malfunctioned, state Chief Electoral Officer Ashwani Kumar said here on Saturday.
Four Opposition parties in Mizoram have urged the Election Commission to introduce Electronic Voting Machine equipped with Voters Verifiable Paper Audit (VVPAT) system during the Assembly polls to be held here on December 4.
