London : Namibia Friday became the first African country in Africa to go to presidential and legislative polls using EVMs made in India.
Opposition parties had challenged the electronic voting machines (EVMs), voicing concerns that lack of a paper trail could encourage vote rigging, BBC reported.
But the case was dismissed by the country's high court earlier this week.
Polling officers will verify voter cards on a device containing the national voters' roll. In the booth, the voter selects his or her party of choice by pressing a button on an electronic ballot unit.
