How the Election Fraud Was Done

How the Fraud Was Done

Below the Haiti Democracy Project’s electoral mission presents images showing how a ruling-party candidate running for the position of deputy in the lower house padded his total.

The method used was the same that Jude Célestin and other Unité Party candidates used throughout the country.

On the left are photos of carbon copies of the official returns of the polling place. On the right are the results posted by the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), which may also be viewed on its website.

Note that the local electoral officials added either 100 or 200 votes to the ruling-party candidate’s total on each return. This addition may be seen on the first line of the result posted by the Provisional Electoral Council.

Note also that in many cases the padding increases the number of votes well beyond the number of valid ballots (“Total Bilten Ki Bon”) reported on the CEP’s results form, thus the result is internally inconsistent. This fact strongly suggests the Tabulation Center’s complicity in the fraud.

Most of the electoral officials in Haiti are adherents of the Unité Party. Those in Ouanaminthe who perpetrated the fraud documented below were allegedly promised US$6,000 for substituting the false returns and sending them on to the Tabulation Center.

  1. And the international community wants to recount the obviously fraudulent votes and declare some criminals winners while our real choices are ignore.

    New CEP

    New elections.

    The costs is small. The benefits big to do right way.

    Then throw Preval in jail. He can stay in Haiti that way.
