New Delhi, April 17: The 9-phased election in India would end up in a chaos if the EVMs malfunction, the crowd goes berserk, the political parties intervened and the booths were rigged.

As was the case previously, not just voting alone, but voting fairly became a fundamental right too. We would not say that there has been a sea change in the administration, but things have changed for the best to some extent.

With electronic voting machines, state-of-the-art security forces and poll watchdogs, people can now vote in peace and in numbers. And they thank the Election Commission on Twitter.

Some of the voters have also posted their queries in the Twitter, especially when Soni Sori from the AAP was seen casting her vote with the AAP cap. One Pawan Khera asks the EC,"Is this allowed and not a violation of the poll code?"

One Vikram Waman Karve said,"Voted early in the morning - Happy to see elections being conducted so efficiently by Election Commission of India".

A survey across Karnataka also proves the efficiency of the Election Commission. "Voting was a cake walk this time; the crowd was managed well and the queue was maintained and disciplined. The last time I had voted, I had to wait for about 4 hours. This time, it took just 15 minutes," said Savitha, a housewife.

"The police is helpful and there are volunteers in the booths who guide you through pretty efficiently," said another voter.
