Report No. 170

7.2.4 Use of Electronic Voting Machine Desirable.-

The idea of electronic voting machines and identity cards for all voters, initiated by the Election Commission sometime ago, is a highly desirable step. The introduction of these two steps would go to make the election process more simple, transparent and fair. Introduction of electronic voting machines would also dispense with the printing of ballot papers which involves substantial amount of public money and time. The printing of ballot papers can be undertaken only after the list of contesting candidates is published under section 38 of the R.P. Act and printing of crores of ballot papers within a short time, with due secrecy and security, is a major exercise.

The introduction of electronic voting machines would enable the Election Commission to dispense with the printing and distribution of ballot papers.It would also help in curtailing the period between the date of publication of the list of contesting candidates (under section 38 of the Act) and the date of polling.The reduction of this period, may be even to one week, would help in reducing the expenditure incurred by the candidates and political parties on election campaign and other incidental expenditure.
