Quico says: Teodoro Petkoff, speaking for Rosales, says the day’s voting went well, but there have been some problems after the end of voting. He adds it’s a waste of time to try to re-open a polling station after it has been closed, because the machines won’t record any more votes once they have been shut down.
Money quote: “Those who believe you can add extra votes to a machine after it has been closed are pissing out of the pot” (están pelando bola.)
He stressed that Rosales has witnesses in every single polling station in the country. He asked for patience from everyone, and promised that Rosales will speak to the nation once results are clear and the audits are complete – which will take some time.
