  7. Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) What are VWPAT machines? The Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (WPAT) is a method that provides feedback to voters. It is an independent verification printer machine and is attached to electronic voting machines. It allows voters to verify if their vote has gone to the intended candidate. How do VVPAT machines work? When a voter presses a button in the EVM, a paper slip is printed through the VVPAT. The slip contains the poll symbol and name of the candidate. It allows the voter to verify his/her choice. After being visible to the voter from a glass case in the VVPAT for seven seconds, the ballot slip will be cut and dropped into the drop box in the VVPAT machine and a beep will be heard. VPAT machines can be accessed by polling officers only. Source: The Hindu CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST
