CEC: VVPATs To Be Installed In All Voting Booths
Ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections 2022, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra said that VVPATs will be installed at all voting booths. Mr Chandra also said that live webcasting facilities will be available in around 1 lakh voting booths for ensuring transparency in the election process. The VVPATs (Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail) functions like an independent verification system which is designed to allow voters to verify their vote and ensure that their vote was cast correctly.
The VVPAT system serves an additional barrier to destroying, changing vote or any other election fraud.
