The general election of the country is scheduled to be held in between April & May in 2019. The Election Commission of India (ECI) has already started its preparations for the 2019 Parliamentary elections by starting the vital task of sending new Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) to Assam.
According to the election commission, the new EVMs have already reached different districts of Assam.
Each EVM has one controlling unit and one ballot unit. The ballot unit (where the voter presses the button) and the control unit (where the cast vote is recorded) have arrived so far.
The VVPAT – which is a method of providing feedback to voters will be arriving soon.
The EVMs have been supplied by Electronics Corporation of India Ltd (ECIL). A team of ECIL engineers will visit Assam soon for the first-level check of the EVMs in the presence of representatives of various political parties.
