Dalma Cruz, president of the (JMD), explained that the methodology will be to consult the booklets where the members of the electoral colleges cross out as the ballot is read.
“This will allow us to get closer to reality, that is, the booklet, to confirm the vote,” said the official.
The electoral official stated this methodology will allow them to achieve in the shortest possible time to correct the imbalances that have come in the results in the voting relations, as well as to identify those that were not completed at the tables by the electoral personnel.
