The Election Commission had earlier organized mock voting at selected polling centres to educate voters on how to use EVMs
A total of 2,124,554 registered voters falling under the six constituencies selected for the use of Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) are slated to vote using the equipment in the ongoing 11th general elections.
The constituencies selected for EVM use are: Dhaka 6 and 13, Chittagong 9, Rangpur 3, Khulna 2, and Satkhira 2.
Around 8:20am at the Dhaka Residential Model College voting centre, which is under the Dhaka 13 constituency, some voters said they are not facing any technical glitches in casting votes.
Earlier, on December 27, the Election Commission organized mock voting at selected polling centres to educate voters on how to use EVMs.
The EVM technology is being used for the first time at the national election level, eight years after being introduced in local government elections in the country.
The machines were first used in the Chittagong City Corporation election of June 2010. However, the Election Commission stopped using the technology in 2015 due to some errors.
The machines were later reintroduced in the Rangpur City Corporation election in 2016.
