Bhopal, 9 May: As per the directive of the Election Commission of India, today Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya, has organised special demonstration cum lecture on use of VVPAT for its employees and visitors. The Officers of IGRMS also briefed the important of every vote for elections and appealed the visitors for use of their voting right. The programme was coordinated by Dr Ashok Sharma, Public Relations Officer.
On this occasion, Dilip Singh, Joint Director, igrms while addressing about Machines used in the election process to the audience / staff of the museum, said that The VVPAT (Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail) is an independent printer system attached with Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) that allows the voters to verify that their votes are cast as intended. It generates a paper slip every time a voter casts his vote, recording the party to whom the vote was made. The VVPAT slip is kept in a sealed cover. VVPAT slip counting takes place in the VVPAT counting booths under the close monitoring of the returning officer and direct oversight of the observer.
On this occasion, Dr. Ashok Sharma (Programme Co-ordinator) told that The voting in India is done using the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) that is designed with two units: the control unit and the balloting unit. The balloting unit of the machine has a list of candidate names and party symbols with a blue button next to it. The voter can press the button next to the candidate’s name they wish to vote for. When the voter casts the vote on the EVM, printer-like VVPAT apparatus linked to the EVM generates a slip showing serial number, name and symbol of the candidate to whom the vote was made. With this slip, the voter can verify his casted vote. This VVPAT slip is displayed for 7 seconds before it's automatically cut. The slip, once viewed, is cut and dropped into the drop box in the VVPAT machine and a beep will be heard. The VVPAT machines can only be accessed by the election officers in the rarest of rare cases. Your name should be registered in the voter list and You must have a voter ID card to vote. – Window To News
