Hey! We can cast votes from any part of the country.
Its not Joke, soon it be reality.
On behalf of Election Commission of India (ECI), IIT Madras is developing a two-way remote voting technology that would facilitate electors to cast their votes from any part of the country — regardless of where they are registered to vote – or even abroad.
Let me illustrate by example: Though this technique, if you are a Mysuru-registered elector & at the time of elections you are visiting Shimla then also you can cast vote electronically.
Facts about Remote Voting Technology
- Based on an Aadhaar-linked electronic voting system.
- Using Blockchain technology.
- Can’t work in isolation.
- The remote voting technology will have to be integrated with ECI’s ERO Net so if a person votes remotely, the electoral roll will reflect that.
Note: The ECI had used a one-way electronic system for service electors for the first time in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The postal ballots were transmitted electronically to the service electors.
