Dominican Republic: JCE raises automated voting together with 100% manual counting; Deloitte leaves

After announcing that the firm Deloitte & Touche will no longer perform the forensic audit of the automated vote due to the questions received, the president of the Central Electoral Board (JCE), Julio César Castaños Guzmán, asked the parties to find a company that does that investigation.

He also raised the use of automated voting in the municipal elections of February 16 so that the votes can be counted that same day in 100 percent manually for less doubts and not applied where there is no connectivity.
He considered it a mistake not to have done it that way on the day of the primary of October 6.

Audience. These aspects arose during a hearing of more than six hours of the JCE with representatives of the parties to know the arguments in favor and against the automated vote.

There were 28 organizations involved (24 parties and four local movements). Of these, 18 favored the implementation of automated voting with some technological observations; four asked to be discarded and the others said they would wait for the results of the audit to fix their position.
