Congolese opposition has dismissed the touchscreens as "cheating machines" while the country's influential Catholic Church has said the devices need "certification by national and international experts."
A long-delayed presidential poll is due to take place in the volatile country in December, and mounting tensions have prompted fears of bloodshed.
The United States, for its part, has said voting machines could undermine the credibility of the polls.
