The Election Commission said the EVMs would carry photographs of all candidates to help voters identify the political leaders in the fray.

The photograph will be printed on the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) ballot units as well as on postal ballot papers, the EC said.

The ECI stated that these measures have been undertaken to help avoid any confusion, which may arise when candidates with the same or similar names contest from the same constituency.

For this purpose, the candidates are required to submit to the RO (Returning Officer), their recent stamp-size photograph as per the specifications laid down by the ECI.
