Caracas, Apr 18 (Prensa Latina) Nearly 0.5 percent of voting machines of Venezuela’s National Electoral Council (CNE), top authority of the country in that matter, that were used in the April 14 elections will be audited.
According to the schedule established by the institution, political organizations’ experts analyze a random sample of the machines as part of a procedure that is carried out after every election.
The review includes the manual count of the voting receipts voters put in the ballot boxes and the information is compared to the data of the notebook where votes are registered.
The amount of receipts must coincide with the number of voters that participated in the election.
Experts also review the integrity of the software used and the digital print each machine has before being sent to polling stations.
During Sunday’s elections, Nicolas Maduro triumphed holding 50,78 percent of the votes (7,575,506).
