AAP workers protest over EVMs outside EC


Aam Aadmi Party workers today demonstrated outside the Election Commission headquarters in New Delhi demanding that voter-verifiable paper audit trail, VVPAT-equipped EVMs be used in future elections. The party has also requested the Election Commission that votes registered in EVMs and paper trails of 25 per cent randomly chosen booths be tallied.

VVPAT-equipped EVMs dispense paper slips which help voters confirm that their vote has indeed gone to the candidate of their choice. Participating in a discussion on the issue during a day-long special session of the Delhi Assembly earlier this week, AAP MLA Saurav Bhardwaj had claimed that a voting machine could be manipulated by simply feeding it with a secret code.
