How to seal the EMV and VVPAT after completion of polling

How to seal the EMV and VVPAT after completion of polling
After the poll has been closed and the ‘account of votes recorded’ in the voting machine has been prepared in Form 17C and copies thereof furnished to the polling agents present, the voting machine and VVPAT should be sealed and secured for transportation to the counting/collection centre.

For sealing and securing the voting machine and VVPAT, the power switch in the Control Unit should first be switched ‘OFF’ and then the Balloting Unit(s), the Control Unit and VVPAT should be disconnected. It should be ensured that the paper slip contained in the drop box of the VVPAT shall be intact. The Balloting Unit(s), the Control Unit and VVPAT should now be put back in their respective carrying cases.

Each carrying case should then be sealed at both ends by passing a thread through the two holes provided for the purpose on both sides of the carrying case and putting thread seal with an address tag showing the particulars of the election, the polling station and the unit contained therein and carrying the Presiding Officer’s signatures with date and seal on it. how-to-seal-the-evm-and-vvpat-after-completion-of-polling

The names of the contesting candidates/polling agents who have affixed their seals on the address tags on the carrying cases of the Balloting Unit(s), Control Unit and VVPAT unit should also be noted by you in the declaration which you have to make at the close of the poll vide Part IV of Annexure 5.
