Lok Sabha elections 2019| EC orders manual counting in five polling booths of Ghaziabad

The mock poll drive is taken up an hour before the start of actual polling to ensure that the three parts of the voting system — EVM, control unit and VVPAT — are functioning properly. Dummy votes are also polled to check the functioning of the three parts.
According to the officials, the five polling booths were identified after the polling staff said that they forgot to reset the CU of the EVMs after the mock poll drive.(HT Photo)

Lok Sabha elections 2019: 1,000 Nizamabad farmers to mass contest polls for higher crop prices

A contest by so many farmers is likely to pose problems for the Election Commission. One EVM can accommodate only 16 names and the control unit can record the voting of only four such EVMs linked together, which means each control unit can register a maximum of 64 candidates.
