Pondicherry Assembly Elections 2016

The 'None of The Above' (NOTA) option with its symbol on electronic voting machines (EVMs)

will make its debut Pondicherry Assembly Elections 2016 in the forthcoming assembly

elections in four states and one Union Territory.

"For the first time in these states, a symbol for NOTA has been provided. Until now, the

commission was writing NOTA, but this time the commission in consultation with National

Institute of Design have prepared a symbol, which will be placed at the bottom of the list of the

candidate," Chief Election Commissioner Naseem Zaidi told the media here.

The Election Commission of India introduced a specific symbol, like other election symbols,

shown below, NOTA, to facilitate the voters in exercising their NOTA option.

The symbol will appear against the NOTA option in the last panel on all EVMs and ballot papers.

A cross on the list of candidates depicts the voter's decision not to vote for any candidate. The

cross is a universal sign denoting disapproval. This makes the Nota symbol easy to recognise and

remember.

In 2013, the Supreme Court had directed the EC to introduce a button for Nota in EVMs and a

symbol on ballot papers to allow voters to Puducherry Assembly Elections 2016 exercise their

right to reject a candidate as unworthy. Earlier, voters who wanted to reject all candidates had the

option of filling form 49-O at a voting booth but this compromised the secrecy of the ballot.
