[New Delhi]EVMs ‘Absolutely Safe’ in Strongrooms: EC
The Election Commission Tuesday dismissed allegations that the voting machines used in the elections were being switched with fresh ones ahead of counting of votes on May 23.
Referring to the allegations and complaints, the commission said it would like to “emphatically and unambiguously” clarify that all such reports and allegations are “absolutely false and factually incorrect.”
The visuals on TV and social media “do not pertain to any EVMs used during the polls”
In a statement, the EC said, after the close of polls, all polled EVMs and VVPATs are brought under security cover to designated strongrooms, which are sealed with double locks in the presence of candidates and observers of the commission.
The entire process of storage and sealing of the strongroom is videoed.
