In the 2006 election, one of the more difficult to explain away anomalies was that the “PREP” returns — the supposedly mathematically valid statistical sampling of results from polling stations throughout the country — began to show an increase in votes for Felipe Calderón that just slightly over-matched the drop in votes for AMLO on results appearing on the PREP report after 10 PM.
It may have been coincidental, but the explanations have never been all that convincing, and — of course — the ballots themselves were never counted, nor were the reported results checked against the tally-sheets prepared by monitors at the individual polling stations. The monitors prepare the tally, post the results and sign them after the polls close at 6 PM. They results are publicly posted and available to the public.
The “official” returns are supposed to be based on those tally sheets, with the ballots themselves as backups, if there are questions. However, checking those tallies (which could have been manipulated after the fact) against the actual ballots was never done in 2006, which has left the lingering suspicion that the “fix was in”, and that frauds at individual polling stations was simply missed.
For those who want to take participate in the election beyond voting (citizens, I mean), and crossing their fingers to hope their own ballot box wasn’t tampered with, “yosoy#132″ has a request. Take a camera, photograph the tallies and upload the photos:
