Glitches in the Electronic Voting Machines were reported from different parts of Kerala mainly from Kovalam but authorities rubbished claims.

Alleged faults in EVM were reported from different parts of the country mainly from Kovalam saying the votes were being cast only for the ‘lotus’ symbol and not even one vote was being cast for another political party.  Collector of Thiruvananthapuram, Dr. K. Vasuki, also the District Election Officer, addressed the people on Facebook saying, “No EVM can be tampered with in the sense that all votes for go for only one political party. The real issue was that after 76 people successful voted in this polling booth the voting machine’s ballot unit got jammed and errors was there. EC had given instructions that if this kind of a situation persists when there is any error then the EVM should be changed immediately. So we changed the EVM accordingly because of this. No issue is there in the polling process. We are successfully conducting elections here,” she said.

Afterwards Alleppey district collector S Suhaas talked to the people of EVM change in the district after a button press error in polling booth number 88 in Cherthala during mock poll. He rubbished claims of votes being registered only to the BJP as part of glitches in EVMs.

Chief Electoral Officer Teeka Ram Meena said earlier that glitches in the EVMs were expected due to heavy rains. But now even NDA’s candidate from Wayanad, Thushar Vellappally has come out mentioning of glitches in the EVMs in Wayanad.
