Lok Sabha elections vote counting: Results likely to be delayed, out by late evening tomorrow

Updated : May 22, 2019 01:15 PM IST

The prolonged time frame is due to the fact that for the first time in a Lok Sabha election results of the electronic voting machines (EVMs) will be matched with slips generated by the voter-verified paper audit trail or VVPATs. 
The entire exercise of EVM-paper trail machine matching will take an additional four to five hours.
The exercise will take place in five polling stations per assembly segment which effectively means that out of nearly 10.3 lakh polling stations, the EVM-VVPAT matching will take place in 20,600 such stations.
