Mock poll data not cleared in 44 booths, EC decides to count only VVPAT slips
By Thehindu 10-May-2019
In all these booths, EVM votes will not be counted.
In its communication to the CEO, the EC said that the counting of VVPAT vote slips was in addition to the random counting of VVPAT vote slips as prescribed by the Commission through its instruction issued in April.
Under the random counting of the VVPATs, five units in each of the Assembly constituencies are to be taken up.
The EC also directed the CEO to inform all Returning Officers concerned about the decision and instruct them to act accordingly.
The EC decision follows a report from the CEO last month stating that mistakes were observed in 46 polling booths across the State.
On being informed about the mistakes in 46 polling booths, the EC on Wednesday announced a repoll in three polling booths of these 46 booths where the mistakes had been found. It also announced a repoll in 10 polling booths where cases of booth capturing and technical defects in EVMs had been observed during the polling on April 18.
