Electoral chaos continues in Haiti

Electoral chaos continued today in Haiti, with continued unrest and mounting anger among Haiti’s electorate regarding delays, alleged irregularities in balloting and vote tabulation, and continually changing vote totals.

According to current reports of partial tabulation results,

a stunning 7 percent of all ballots counted so far have been invalidated. Other media reports repeat this 7 percent invalidation figure, and also have claimed that at least another 4 percent of ballots examined so far were blank.

When the dust settles, examining how many ballots were invalidated in this election will provide some important data for analysts to study. Hopefully these data will be available to the international research community.
