Here is a look at how votes for Lok Sabha elections are counted
Updated : May 22, 2019 05:12 PM IST
The primary responsibility of counting the votes in a constituency lies with the Returning Officer (RO), an officer of the government or a local authority nominated by the commission.
The Election Commission of India has been employing Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) to conduct Lok Sabha and assembly elections since 2000.
Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) system was added to the EVM process to make the voting system much more transparent and to negate the possibility of manipulation.
