By integrating video technology with other systems like, for example, alarm and access control, electoral authorities can create a comprehensive safeguarding network against both physical and cyber threats, enhancing overall election security.

General elections are being held in India from April 19 to June 1, 2024, in seven phases, to elect 543 members of the Lok Sabha. The votes will be counted, and the results will be declared on June 4, 2024.

This is the largest-ever election in history, surpassing the 2019 Indian general election, and lasts 44 days, second only to the 1951–52 Indian general election. The incumbent prime minister, Narendra Modi, who completed a second term, is running for a third consecutive term.

Keeping this in mind, we are excited to share insights from Rahul Yadav, Chief Technology Officer at Milestone Systems, regarding the critical role of video management and CCTV solutions in ensuring the integrity and transparency of elections.

“Video management and CCTV solutions have the potential to ensure the integrity and transparency of elections every step of the way.

These systems play a pivotal role in monitoring polling stations, not only by documenting the electoral process but also by deterring unauthorized activities. Similarly, they can be deployed to safeguard the transportation of ballots, ensuring that all electoral materials are securely transferred and accounted for upon arrival at counting centers. At the counting centers, continuous surveillance is extremely beneficial, helping to verify that the counting process adheres to established procedures and ensuring access is restricted to authorized personnel only.

Additionally, in the event of disputes or allegations of misconduct, video footage serves as reliable evidence, aiding in a transparent and effective resolution. By integrating video technology with other systems like, for example, alarm and access control, electoral authorities can create a comprehensive safeguarding network against both physical and cyber threats, enhancing overall election security.”
