Ever as the election department is awaiting the final order from the Election Commission on the electoral code of conduct, it has forwarded a request to Bihar for 14,000 Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) for the forthcoming assembly elections.
Although 20,700 EVMs have been procured from Uttar Pradesh, the request has been put forth as there is a shortage of EVMs.
The department had earlier put the request for the machines from Karanataka but the state has agreed to give their machines to Raigad and so the district has made the request to Bihar.

“There are 21 Assembly constituencies and with an increased number of voters, the machines required and as back-up is more. We have received the machines from Uttar Pradesh and now with these machines coming from Bihar should suffice,” said election officials.
The officials clarified that none of the existing machines in the district used for the Lok Sabha polls would be used for the Assembly elections as they were manufactured before 2006.
