The national electoral body reported that between Monday, August 30 and Friday, September 3, the computer components related to the installation and initialization of the machines were reviewed and evaluated. Likewise, the performance of the “Voting experience” module was tested, which allowed to start the analysis of the machine’s operability in the voter authentication phase and selection of the voting option.
During the activity there was continuous interaction between the experts in charge of conducting the audit and the representatives of political parties who participated in person, to which were added the proposals of national observers and members of electoral bodies of Latin America and other regions, who participated through the digital platform Zoom.
The second phase of the audit of the voting machines software will begin on Monday, September 6. The process is being broadcast daily from 9 a.m. on CNETV streaming channel, which can be accessed from the official website of the CNE: cne.gob.ve.
