In the light of recent reports on EVMs during #AssemblyElections2021, we are reposting The Quint's extensive coverage on EVM-VVPAT vulnerabilities from our archives.
Thread ⬇️
Repost | An expert committee report recommended EC to redesign #EVMs and facilitate audit of EVM-VVPAT votes to address concerns related to voting system.
@poonamjourno detailed in Jan 2021.
Repost | "#EC should count 100% #VVPAT slips. Time to count VVPAT slips is equal to the time it takes to count #EVMs," former Chief Election Commissioner, SY Quraishi told @poonamjourno in this Dec 2020 interview.
(From the archives)
Repost | "Many countries have stopped using #EVMs after finding out its vulnerabilities. But the #EC wants to maintain a cloak of secrecy around EVM-VVPAT. Why?"

Repost | Former EVM-VVPAT machine engineers exclusively spoke to @poonamjourno, in Aug 2020, revealing "poor checking of polling machines during 2019 Lok Sabha elections."

Repost | @poonamjourno's May 2019 investigation revealed discrepancies in multiple constituencies in the votes polled and counted in #LokSabhaElection2019. The #EC refused to explain the mismatch.

The Quint filed RTI queries with the #EC seeking data on the number of EVM votes polled for #BiharAssembly elections, 2020. However, we received replies from only 26 constituencies out of a total of 243. Why is EC hiding the data? @poonamjourno's report.…

EDITOR'S NOTE: On 13 January, The Quint published a video titled ''How to Prove I’m Indian?’ Muslim Driver Breaks Down Over NRC Fear', in which a cab driver is seen speaking about his fears about a prospective nationwide NRC exercise.
The driver has since been subjected to severe trolling on SM. For instance, on 15 Jan, Vivek Agnihotri tweeted, "Ok friends, I am told that this man is also a part time junior actor in Bollywood. He was paid by @TheQuint to do this performance in a written script."
The Quint would like to state the following:
➡️The concerned driver has confirmed to us that he has never been an actor.
➡️The original video was recorded by musician Sumit Roy, who has confirmed to us that the interaction was not scripted.
