Objections to register of voters do not mean substantial risk for 10/7
Interested voters vouch for 98% of relocation
Does the register of voters to be used on October 7 show inconsistencies? Yes. Do such inconsistencies signify a risk for the presidential election? No. This is the main conclusion of the technicians of opposition campaign team Comando Venezuela, after an analysis of the log of all registered voters and reception by the Committee of Civil and Electoral Registry, National Electoral Council (CNE) last July 25, in reply to the objections made last month.
While the election technicians for the opposition conceded that the CNE does not answered as expected, they uphold that the objections presented which were not solved- "do not pose a substantial risk" on the next election for Venezuelan president.
The unsettled complaints brought forward by Comando Venezuela include the case of the homonymous, that is, the prevalence in the register of voters of 18,411 identity cards associated to 9,155 people.
Nevertheless, they maintained that attesting witnesses can offset any anomaly on the voters' data base.
A random telephone audit performed by Comando Venezuela found that 98% of relocations were spontaneously required by voters or suggested by the CNE and accepted by voters.
The telephone audit comprised 70,000 calls nationwide to voters relocated from September 26, 2010.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
