Indian court refuses to direct Election Commission on paper records on EVMs

John Ribeiro | Jan. 18, 2012
A court in Delhi on Tuesday declined to direct India's Election Commission to have paper receipts of votes recorded on electronic voting machines (EVMs), or go back to ballot paper.

The EVMs are vulnerable to tampering at a number of stages at the time the software that runs them is burned onto their chips, during their storage before an election, and during the period between the voting and the counting of the votes, the researchers said.

Prasad was arrested for his efforts last year for alleged theft of the EVM. He told the police that the machine had been brought to him by an unknown person.
