Several voters took to social media to show that the ‘indelible’ ink used in elections is easily removable which is a sign of a problem. Voters were easily able to remove the ink using a simple alcohol solution or in some cases strong soap. This defeats the entire purpose of the ink and it enables those with duplicate voter id’s to vote again or vote on behalf of others. The Election Commission has not reacted to the complaints yet.
