EVM Transfers All Votes To Congress

Pune: Defective voting machine transfers all votes to Congress-IBN Live 20th April 2014

The early morning voters of Pune were left stunned when an electronic voting machine (EVM) reportedly "transferred" all votes to the Congress.
The incident happened at a polling booth at Shamrao Kalmadi School in the city when voters found that whichever button was pressed on the EVM, only the Congress light blinked.
Some of the alert voters brought this to the notice of the election officials who stopped voting immediately.
"The Election Commission authorities have ordered a new machine for this particular polling booth which is expected to come soon," said local BJP activist Madhur Sahasrabuddhe.
The poll panel has also decided to permit around 28 voters who had already cast their votes with the defective EVM, to vote afresh.
