Election Commission backs out of EVM Hackathon No Hackathon

Election Commission backs out of EVM Hackathon No Hackathon

Majority Indian people have lost faith in the Electronic voting machines.
Many Indian political parties like AAP, BSP have alleged that EVMs were tampered with in the February-March assembly elections in 5 states and the just-concluded civic polls in Delhi.

On May 12th, 2017, Election commission of India announced that All future elections will be held with voting machines that have a paper trail attached.

The Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) system records the candidate and symbol a person voted for but the voter cannot take the receipt home.

The announcement was made by chief election commissioner after a meeting with representatives of seven national and 35 recognized state parties here.

Chief Election Commissioner also said the poll panel will soon announce the date for an “open challenge”, where party representatives will be given EVMs used in recent polls to prove allegations they can be tampered with.

In 2009-2010 BJP leaders started saying that it is possible to hack EVM and Indian democracy is in Danger.

Hope very soon CEC will give EVM machines for one or two week to political parties to prove that it is possible to hack EVMs.

To restore faith now election commission of India needs to see that in all future elections VVPAT system will get used.
NO VVPAT system = no election postpone the elections unless and until VVPAT system becomes available.

EVM tampering is a serious allegation which should be addressed by election commission soon if it wants people to restore their belief in our electoral process.
