General Elections 2019 Trivia: Where do India's EVMs stand compared to America's

The largest democracy in the world is gearing up for the 17th Lok Sabha elections starting April 11.

For the last 20 years, elections in India have been conducted using electronic voting machines (EVMs) despite multiple controversies.

Before EVMs came into force, paper ballots were widely used to cast the votes during the elections. In 1996, about 8,800 tonnes of paper was used in the election but the amount was reduced to 7,700 tonnes in 1999.

Take a look at how India's voting machines fare against the American EVMs.
