Elon Musk advised against using electronic voting machines (EVMs) due to hacking risks, sparking debates on their security amid irregularities in Puerto Rico's primaries. However, India defended its third-generation M3 EVMs as tamper-proof, with no connectivity and oversight from IIT experts and the Election Commission. The Supreme Court issued directives to further strengthen EVM security while rejecting demands for 100% VVPAT verification. #ElonMusk #EVMs #EVMHacking #BallotPaper #ElonMuskNews #PuertoRico #IndianElections2024 #Indianews #RajeevChandraShekhar #Worldnews #Oneindia #Oneindianews ~HT.178~ED.155~GR.125~
