With EVMs, counting of votes is now a matter of a few hours. 

In the first General Elections, in a two-member Parliamentary constituency in Uttar Pradesh, the counting of votes took as many as 20 days.

Similarly, in Travancore-Cochin, counting of votes in a two-member Assembly constituency took 12 days.
