Election Commission Secretary Helal Uddin Ahmed has said electronic voting machines (EVMs) will be used in only six of the 300 constituencies during the 11th general election slated for December 30.

He made the statement at a press briefing on Saturday.

The constituencies will be chosen via random selection, and EVMs will be implemented in all the centres of each of them.

The results of the lottery will be announced on November 28.
