HONDURAS — In an effort to give the average person access to the actual voting tallies for the recent presidential election in Honduras, and thereby provide transparency to the process, a group of enterprising young Hondurans — including Roberto Brevé, Alejandro Corpeño, Jorge García, and Fernando Irias — have developed a software application at conteo.votosocial.org.
It is a “crowdsourced solution” that takes the official ballots of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) and transfers them to another storage location to prevent tampering. To navigate through the list, click on “Validar Actas” or just go to conteo.votosocial.org/acta. With this new app, anyone can see the certified ballot results for themselves and verify whether or not the reported voting numbers are accurate.
Members of the VotoSocial.org team will be providing their observations, analyses, and conclusions about the ballot talley sheet numbers and the overall election results. In the meantime, if you would like to analyse the talley sheet numbers for yourself and would like to have a copy of them in Excel or CSV format, you can download the spreadsheet by clicking:
