11. Can We Trust EVMs With Our Voices?

The Non-NDA Parties Have Questioned The Reliability Of EVMs, Despite ECI's Repeated Assurance That, Since There Is No Wireless System In EVMs, They Cannot Be Hacked.

Nevertheless, 21 Non-NDA Parties Requested The Supreme Court To Lead The ECI To Make The Counting Of VVPAT Paper Strips Compulsory In At Least 50% Of The EVMs In Each Assembly Segment, Even Though It May Delay The Statement Of Results. The Opposition Has Challenged The Guidelines Of ECI 's Whereby VVPATs Should Be Counted From Only One Randomly Selected Polling Station Per Assembly Component Or Segment To Check The Correctness Of EVMs. This Translates Into A Real Check Of Less Than 0.44% EVMs In The Country They Have Argued.
