“EU EOM observers reported that the EC didn’t follow procedures like counting of unused ballots, counting of ticks in the voter register and names reference list, counting of ballots in the ballot box…” the report stated.
They further explained that “cross-checking the number of ballots in the ballot box against the number of ticks in the voter register, and recording the number of voters verified by the BVD manually”
