Earlier, the Election Commission of India designed in-house software for complete Candidate and election management through ‘ENCORE’ which stands for Enabling Communications on Real-time Environment.

This system provides a seamless facility for Returning Officers to process candidate nomination, affidavit, Voter turnout, counting, results and data management. The ENCORE counting application is an end-to-end application for returning officers to digitize the votes polled, tabulate the round-wise data and then take out various statutory reports of counting.
