Ten academics and scientists with a high level of technical accreditation in their fields participate in the audit, working closely with electoral specialists from the CNE. They will thoroughly certify the operation of each of the components that make up the SAE.

The audit, which will be carried out at the CNE headquarters until July 26, is the first of its kind, and its main objective is to generate confidence in the Automated Voting System, through a methodology that will allow the review of each of the components that comprise it, in order to verify its correct operation and transparency.
