The teams constituted by the Election Commission have submitted their preliminary fact finding reports in the malfunctioning of Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail machines during recent by-elections to Kairana and Bhandara-Gondiya Parliamentary Constituencies.

The Commission said, the reports indicated that the malfunctioning of the machines were due to the failure of contrast sensor and length sensor. It said, these errors are mainly caused by excessive exposure to illumination in the polling station.

The Commission has asked the manufacturers and the Technical Expert Committee, to suggest additional design improvements to prevent any excessive exposure to illumination in future.
