Imphal, December 13 2021: In view of the upcoming 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly election, 2022, an aware- ness programme on familiarization of Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) and Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) was held today for journalists working in print and electronic media, at the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Manipur.

Joint Chief Electoral Officer (II), Manipur, Md S Daulat Khan said that the programme was held for increasing digital outreach and innovative physical outreach for awareness, familiarity and ease of use of EVM and VVPAT.

Explaining the detailed functioning of the EVM, he informed that EVM was designed with two units: the control unit and the balloting unit.

These units are joined together by a cable.

The control unit of the EVM is kept with the presiding officer or the polling officer while the ballot unit along with VVPAT is kept within the voting compartment for electors to cast their votes.

With the EVM, instead of issuing a ballot paper, the polling officer will press the ballot button which enables the voter to cast their vote.

A list of candidates' names, photos and symbols will be available on the machine with a blue button next to it.

The voters can press the button next to the candidate's name they wish to vote for, he added.

Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) or Verifiable Paper Record (VPR), on the other hand, is a method for providing an independent verification system for voting machines designed to allow voters to verify that their vote was cast correctly and to provide a means to audit the stored electronic results.

It contains the serial number, name of the candidate (for whom vote has been cast) and symbol of the party/individual candidate.

Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines are used during the election process to verify that the vote polled by a voter goes to the candidate they voted for.

VVPATs are a second line of verification and are particularly useful in the time when allegations of tampering Electronic Voting Machines crop up.

After a voter presses the button on the EVM against the chosen candidate, the VVPAT prints a slip containing the name of the candidate and the election symbol and drops it automatically into a sealed box.

The machines give a chance for the voters to verify their vote.

The machine is placed in a glass case in a way that only the voter can see it.

The slip is displayed to the voter for seven seconds after which the VVPAT machine cuts it and drops it into the paper compartment with a beep.

Five polling stations are randomly selected for physical counting of VVPAT slips.

If any discrepancy arises at the time of counting, VVPAT slips will be mandatorily counted for that particular polling station.

It may be mentioned that EVM demonstration centres have been set up in the offices of the CEO, Manipur, district headquarters and all the offices of the Returning Officers (ROs) in compliance with the instruction of the ECI.

They are set up to make the voters/citizens have the live experience on EVM/VVPAT and ensure that the voters are sensitized about the operations of the EVM.

The programme was attended by W Phajatombi, coordinator (PMC) and more than 20 journalists.
