Electronic Voting Machines or EMV designed in 2005 by three BUET students. They are KM Masum Habib, Rajib Mikail and Mahmudul Hasan. They designed these machines under supervision of Dr. SM Lutful kabir of BUET. These machines first used at Chittagong City Corporation election. They were successfully used at 14 polling stations. The machines are presently being used in the Narayanganj City Corporation election.


The battery run machines has to components- the ballot machine and the control unit. The ballot machine looks exactly like ballot paper, the only difference being that it is fitted with buttons. The names of the candidates are clearly written in the machine’s face alongside their symbols. To cast his or her ballot, a voter simply needs to press the button beside the candidate’s name and symbol.
