Just a reminder that leads will not be known by 11 AM as is usual for an election these days, but by 4 PM, so the wait will be longer. This is because for the first time the VVPAT will also be counted and tallied with the EVMs.
#2019Elections
5 polling booths in every Assembly constituency will be taken up for VVPAT counting. In 4120 assembly constituencies, that's 20,600 polling booths that will come up for VVPAT tallying.
This is about 2% of the 10.3 lakh booths where voting took place nationwide
#2019Elections
Postal votes will be counted first as always, starting 8 AM, then the EVM votes, and then the VVPAT tallied. This VVPAT tally is expected to delay information on leads by 4-5 hours. #2019Elections
EVM and VVPAT counting takes place in the presence of the authorised agent of EVERY candidate, so chances of "setting" are minimal. #2019Elections
For totalling just 2% of the booths in the country by paper audit, there is a delay of 4-5 hours. Imagine, if we go to ballot boxes, it would run into days, and possible fixing! No wonder some parties want ballot boxes back #2019Elections
And in case of any discrepancy between EVM and VVPAT, the VVPAT verdict stands final. Interesting move, that! #2019Elections
