The Election Commission since 2010 has been phasing in a third unit called the VVPAT or the Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail. It allows voters to verify that their votes have been recorded correctly by printing a paper receipt.
This system will be used with all voting machines in the upcoming assembly and general elections.
NOTA was introduced to the EVM in 2013. Since then it has been used in one Lok Sabha election and 37 Assembly elections.
In all elections between 2013 and 2017, NOTA secured a total of 1.33 crore votes. This means on an average, NOTA got 2.7 lakh votes in 37 Assembly polls that took place till 2017.
Contrary to the common perception, NOTA votes have not affected the outcome of any Parliamentary and Assembly election.
