DC Belagavi and District Election Oficer Nitesh Patil said Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) were dispatched to polling stations with tight security measures in place. The EVMs were sent to the eighteen polling stations of the district after the first randomisation, in accordance with the guidelines of the Election Commission.

Patil, who is also the District Election Commissioner, reviewed the process of sending the EVMs to the respective constituencies according to randomisation in the EVM warehouse of the Election Commission of India located in Hindalaga village.

In total, 5321 ballot units, 5321 control units, and 5765 VVPATs allocated to the 18 assembly constituencies of the district will be sent to the polling stations after affixing stickers with the number and names of the respective polling station and securing them in trunks and sealing them. The EVMs will be transported in GPS-equipped container vehicles with tight police security, and representatives of political parties will be present to watch the EVM transportation process.
