A total of 1,586 ballot units, 1,539 control units and 1,542 VVPAT machines were randomized through the computer system. Out of these, 338 ballot units, 338 control units and 351 VVPAT machines will be distributed for Kasba Peth constituency and 638 ballot units, 638 control units and 663 VVPAT machines will be distributed for Chinchwad constituency.

Candidates, their representatives and officers concerned with the election process were present during the Randomisation process. Randomisation process is followed in two stages before EVMs are put to use. The reason behind the process is to ensure that nobody knows in advance which EVMs will be allotted to a constituency/polling station.
