The Central Election Commission of Georgia has tested electronic machines for vote-counting during the Zugdidi by-elections yesterday. Electronic voting machines (EVMs) use a keyboard, touch-screen, mouse, pen or other electronic device to allow voters record their votes electronically. DREs are used in polling stations. The system captures the voter’s choices and stores an electronic record of their vote in the machine. The data captured is then transmitted by either electronic means or manually.
… The pilot project on vote counting is being implemented in cooperation with the Canadian international organization DELIAN.
By-elections at Tsaishi community, which took place because of the death of Tsaishi majoritarian deputy last year, were held at three election precincts yesterday.
