351 new EVMs fail on counting day in Gujarat, officials resort to manual counting of VVPAT slips

Despite using brand new EVMs (Electronic Voting Machines) and VVPATs (Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail) during the Lok Sabha elections in Gujarat, paper slips of 351 VVPAT machines had to be manually counted on May 23 as the Control Units (CUs) of EVMs failed to display results due to “technical reasons”.
A total of 1,305 VVPATs were manually counted in polling booths where Lok Sabha polls for 26 seats were held. Apart from the 351 VVPATs counted where CUs malfunctioned, 29 VVPATs were counted in polling booths where mock-poll data were not erased. Another 929 VVPATs were counted in accordance with the Election Commission rule that VVPAT slips of five polling booths in each assembly constituency must be cross-checked with the EVM results.
