1. The Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) is a reliable system for conduct of elections in which one person has to be elected out of many candidates.
2. EVM consists mainly of two units – (a) Control Unit (CU) and (b) Balloting Unit (BU) with cable for connecting it with the Control Unit. A Balloting Unit caters upto 16 candidates. Four Balloting Units linked together catering in all to 64 candidates can be used with one Control Unit.
3. EVM uses a modern microcomputer and other Large Scale Integration (LSI) chips. It operates on a special Power pack. It is tamper-proof, error-free and easy to operate. It is easily portable. The polling information once recorded is retained in its memory even when the Power pack is removed.

It is the end product of considerable experience and extensive trials in Indian Elections under the guidance of the Election Commission of India.
