Chandigarh: The Election Commission of India has directed that Electronic Voting Machines be used for Dasuya Assembly bypoll in Punjab to be held on July 11.

All voters would have to produce their Electoral Photo Identity Cards for establishing their identity before casting their votes, a spokesman of the Chief Election Office of
Punjab said in a release here.
EVMs will be used in the bypoll to be held on July 11, he said.

Voters who do not have voter cards shall have to produce the "Authenticated Photo Voter Slip" issued by the election machinery for identification in the polling stations.
The release said those voters whose photographs are either not available in the authenticated photo voter slip or the photo in the voter card does not match, can produce documents like passport, driving license, PAN card and service identity cards having photographs.
