Students of Delhi University, mostly the first-time voters, on Saturday were acquainted with the functioning of EVMs and VVPAT machines by the District Magistrate and the Delhi University Students’ Union.
DM K Mahesh reminded the students that the VVPAT could not be easily tampered with. In addition he said there is no basis to judge or doubt the machines, assuring complete reliability.
“We have set up the VVPAT machines so that the first time voters can get accustomed with the process and so that they can verify and refer to whom they are voting for” ,added Mahesh.
An appeal was made by Delhi’s chief election officer Ranbir Singh to the students to help boost up the number of voters from a low of 1 lakh to at least 6 lakhs. He urged all the students ranging from 18-19 years of age to effectively participate in the election process. He said,
“Youth constitute the highest number of voters in the country and they should use their votes to build a strong and empowered society.”
