Election results to be announced late due to VVPAT matching and bar code in the service voter slips, 

MAY 16 (WTN) - If you’re thinking is that the results of the Lok Sabha Elections will be announced early due to the EVM, and then you are wrong. For your information, let you know that the results of the Lok Sabha Elections may be delayed this time compared to the previous Lok Sabha Elections. That's because, this time, due to the matching of votes recorded in VVPAT along with EVM, the results of the Lok Sabha Elections may be delayed.

For your information, let you know that the Election Commission has clarified that during the counting of votes, the VVPAT data will be considered as correct and final when there will be a difference between votes cast in the EVM and related VVPAT. Indeed, after the request of the opposition parties, the directions have been given by the Supreme Court. After the Supreme Court directions, now the votes cast in any five EVMs in each assembly seat under a parliament seat will be matched with related VVPAT. On the demand of candidates, any particular EVM and related VVPAT can also be counted.

The Election Commission has issued directions to the Chief Electoral Officers of all the states to count the counting and how the votes will be counted. According to the Election Commission, if for any reason the difference between votes registered in the EVM and its associated VPPAT is found, then in this situation, the votes recorded in VPPAT will be declared as election results assuming the correct and final votes.

During the counting, five EVMs will be selected from each assembly seat through the lottery, and the votes recorded in the respective VVPAT will be matched with votes recorded in the EVM. However, if a candidate suspects a particular EVM, then he/she can apply to the Election Officer for the counting to the votes recorded in the VVPAT related to that EVM.

For this whole process, the candidate must apply this on his/her own or through his/her own counting agent. But according to the Election Commission's rules, the candidate will have to give a solid reason for his/her demand. The final decision of matching the votes cast in the particular EVM and related VVPAT on a candidate's demand will be taken by the election officer.

It is being said that election results may be declared up to late night this time. That's because, due to the counting of the postal ballot and EVM counting, as well as subsequent matching of the votes of VVAT’s, the final results may take time to declare. For your information, let you know that bar code has been used on the Service Voter Slip this time, and it takes about two and a half minutes to be read by the bar code machine. In such a situation, it is natural that the time consuming in the counting of the service voters will be more.

After looking at the time taken in all these processes, it is clear that it is natural to be delayed in the result of the Lok Sabha Elections this time. Years ago elections were held from the ballot paper, due to which the result had to be declared in one to two days. But after the use of EVM, the election results were declared in a few hours in the last Lok Sabha Elections. But now, matching the votes registered in VVPAT and bar code in the service voters will take time in counting which can lead to more than 24 hours of election results.
