Instructions on the use of EVMs in Polling Stations

Instructions on the use of EVMs in Polling Stations

In order to ensure that the conduct of the Presiding Officer and other polling staff, in no way gives scope for any complaint, the Commission has issued the following instructions for strict adherence:

  1. The D.E.O shall supply a printed sample of EVM Balloting unit pasted on a cardboard (real size) to all the presiding officers along with other polling materials at the time of dispatch. While printing such model ballot, care shall be taken to ensure that only dummy name and dummy symbols that are not in use, are used and not any real names or symbols. It shall be printed in color so that ‘blue button’ ‘green light’ and ‘red light’ etc. are clearly represented. 

  2. Whenever any voter asks for help or expresses inability to vote using EVM, the presiding officer can explain to the voter the voting process using the cardboard model of the EVM ballot in such a manner that the voter is able to understand. This shall be done outside the voting compartment only in the presence of polling agents and never inside the voting compartment.
  3. evm instructions
  4. The Presiding Officer or other polling staff shall not frequent the voting compartment as that may give scope for complaints.
  5. In order to ensure that no voter has committed any mischief by pasting any paper, tapes etc., on the symbol/ names / ballot button, the presiding officer may from time to time make an inspection of Balloting unit (BU)- but he should make it a point to do so in the immediate presence of polling agents when there is no voter inside the voting compartment.
  6. Any complaint about the conduct of the polling staff at the polling station shall be taken seriously and properly enquired. The Observers are being instructed to take serious note of such complaints and conduct or cause enquiry into such allegations and submit reports to the Commission.
  7. All the CUs/BUs/VVPATs allotted to Polling Stations as well as the reserve machines shall be kept in the strong room in the presence of candidates/agents. They can also be allowed to affix their seal on the lock of the strong room.
