6:30 REPORT: How Biometric Devices Are Working?
In this episode of 6:30 Report, TOLOnews’ Tariq Majidi has assessed the way the biometric devices will work on the election day and the problems that the units are faced with.
On the election day, first fingerprints of voters and their pictures will be recorded in the biometric devices and then the photos in the voters’ IDs and the stickers on the IDs will be recorded in the devices prior to voting.
The biometric issue has been a controversial topic for months after the political parties’ coalition first raised the issue of large-scale fraud committed during the voter registration process.
The IEC has so far trained 2,000 individuals to use the of biometric devices. The commission has appointed 110,000 employees for election day – half of whom are women.
