The electoral register has historical errors. Wilson Hinojosa, director of the Electoral Register of the National Electoral Council (CNE), made it clear after the questionings of computer technicians of political organizations.
The Civil Registry also eluded this responsibility; cleaning data is the task of the election authority, said deputy director Claudio Pietro. The original database the Civil Registry gave to the CNE has 19 million records (of people of all ages). For Enrique Mafla, computer specialist delegate of the PSP, it is impossible to revise it for these coming elections. He suggested taking a random sample to determine the quality of the registers.
According to Hinojosa, the preliminary register now consists of approximately 12.5 million records. And these are the ones that have to be cleaned. And he insists that only on October 2, according to the schedule, the final list of voters will be known. In 2014, the register featured 11,601,835 voters.
