Final Election Commission data revealed that there was not a single mismatch between the VVPAT slips and the EVM count.
The General Election witnessed the Election Commission using 22.3 lakh ballot units, 16.3 lakh control units and 17.3 lakh VVPATs.
Of these 17.3 lakh VVPATs, a physical count of 20,625 VVPAT slips was to be done in this election, according to the report.
