VVPAT System: How does it work?

VVPAT

The Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) is a system of implementing assessment to voters utilizing a ballot less voting system. The VVPAT is an autonomous printer system adhered with Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) that grants the voters to authenticate that their votes are cast as promised. It spawns a paper slip every time a voter pitches his vote, recording the party to whom the vote was made. The VVPAT slip is conserved in a sealed cover.

How does the VVPAT System works?

The voting in India is determined via the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) that is devised with two units: the control unit and the balloting unit. The balloting unit of the machine has a record of candidate names and party symbols with a blue button next to it. The voter can choose the button adjacent to the candidate’s name they aspire to cast their vote for.

  • When the voter casts their vote on the EVM, printer-like VVPAT device connected to the EVM creates a slip displaying a serial number, name and motif of the candidate to whom the vote has been casted for.
  • Using this, the voter can authenticate his/her vote.
  • This VVPAT slip is visible for 7 seconds before it’s naturally cut.
  • The slip, once read, is cut and discharged into the drop box in the VVPAT machine and a bell sound can be heard.
  • The VVPAT machines can only be attained by the election officers only in exceptional or exquisite cases.

  • Silver nitrate is the chemical used in voting inks and this is preferred because this chemical is soluble in water and results in an inky black solution.
  • Also, when silver nitrate is put on the skin, the salt present on the skin combine with it to form silver chloride which is not soluble in water and eventually results in getting attached to the skin. Note that it can’t be washed off with soap and water. Not even with hot water, alcohol, bleach or nail polish remover.
  • This ink will disappear as then old skin die and hence it is optimal to use silver nitrate as the ink to remove the process to prevent people from voting numerous times.
  • These inks are produced in Mysore. The company which makes these ineradicable inks are Mysore Paints and Varnish Limited. Only these two companies in India are authorized to produce these type of inks.
