For the first time in a general election to the Assembly, a web camera would be kept on each table at every counting centre, according to Praveen Kumar, Chief Electoral Officer.
The camera will record what is shown on display panels of electronic voting machines from the beginning to the end continuously. The images captured by the camera would be stored in compact discs, which would later be kept in the safe custody of District Election Officers.
At the time of announcement of every round of counting, the details of votes polled would be shown on the screen of the laptop to be kept on the table and their summary will be displayed on notice boards of counting halls. There would be, on an average, 10 to 15 tables in every counting centre.
