After 1:00 pm, the Specialized Prosecutor's Office for the Attention of Electoral Crimes, reported that 74 complaints had been received at the national level for various irregularities and 6 arrests had been made. Its owner, Hector Diaz Santana, said that the majority of complaints are for the purchase of votes and the withdrawal of voter credentials and acts of violence; especially in the State of Mexico, Veracruz, Chiapas and Oaxaca.

Special Election Booths
As in all elections, the lack of ballots in special election voting booths has provoked anger and mobilization in various points of the republic, as detailed below, included a sit-in in front of the offices of the INE in the peripheral area of Mexico City. The protests were repeated in Jalisco, Oaxaca, Guanajuato, Yucatan. The INE in the voice of Counselor Ciro Murayama, clarified that by law the special election boxes only have 750 ballots.

Although Lorenzo Córdoba announced that only four boxes throughout the country were not installed. However, there were disagreements throughout the country due to delays in the opening of polling places for voters.
Such is the case of the polling place where Andrés Manuel López voted

Facebbok users report that special election ballots were not installed in the first frame of the city. They are in the Vasconcelos library and General Hospital.
In the area with more foreign voters, the INE does not place special election boxes! I share in pissing off the people who will not be able to vote. The ballots of Vasconselos were used up very fast, at 9:30 A group of foreigners are complaining that from very early there were no tickets in General Hospital.
Testimony of Father Solalinde
The special election box of the Vasconcelos Library is a disaster: it opened late, they are disorganized and the line is endless. The ballots are totally insufficient. Why do Mexicans have to be so irresponsible and disorganized? And the institutions?

  1. Thanks for the update profe.
    An eagerly anticipated result of what's transpiring in Mexico.
    Spoke with mom early this morning trying to ease her fears.

    Thank you again Profe.

  2. Crazy to see how brazen they are. Anyone who doubts corruption has to be blind.

  3. Sounds much like a Nigerian election. kayode.

  4. Amlo is the President. Nothing will change. But will get worst. To bad the Pan did not win.

    1. 4:37 blame the fake ass huichol, stealing FECALS's call ones cagados and his wife''s panties was not nice...
      --El huichol anaya could have waited 6 pinchis years and helped Mágara "La Señora de Calderón" win her party's nomination and not rely so much on his stolen moneys, but what really needed to be stolen was AMLO'S VICTORY...

  5. A BIG gracias for putting these up ! thank you .

  6. pri/pan suffocation kicks

  7. Father Solalinde needs to stop complaining about "the mexicans" and see where he can help the most, he did a lot of help when people were most desperate trying to find the 43 ayotzinapos, conspiring to deceive with PRI government COVER-UP agents and secret conferences...

  8. It's all about the MONEY. Corruption is Globally and The rich get richer!

  9. The election for AMLO will some day be proved to be funded to enable the amnesty for the family of El Azul Moreno y la familia de Señor Zambada. I only pray and hope AMLO does not take our land.

    1. I agree with the funding of his campaign by those narcos. Something I stated back when he pitched amnesty.
      Why else would there have been a blanket over his head from any attempt on his life? The promise of freedom to those narcos and to those serving sentences.
      It's not rocket science to read between the lines.


    2. Mexico does not revolve around those narcos. There are way bigger fish then those hidding in caves full of paranoia. But then again that's all the Sinaloas look up to and admire so much they think they make everything happen . pebdejos

  10. For Fu#%s sake; what is wrong with Mexico?

    Is this why we are asking for "open borders"?

    All this nonsense, corruption and violence makes Mexicans and those of Mexican decent look horrible!

    1. Where have you been, this has been going on for years, care to open an Autodefensas? Just promise not to get sucked into the dark cartel forces.

    2. 7:54 the ones coming illegally into "your country" these days are mostly Guatemalan and hondurans, special ordered by "the regime" to put pressure on the "DEMS" to make them cough a 25 to 30 billion dollar wall...
      a rocket up the ass would have produced netter results...

  11. The US news sites state that the elections went peacefully, with no Major incidents....what a joke.

  12. Unfortunately Mexico and the central american countries use their people as income. Thats why they all support open borders. Money people send back to their countries of origin are a huge part of the economy because of their lack of doing their job. I bet if Trump said you can all stay but cant send money a whole new protest would start. I hope AMLO makes a difference but he is fighting a lifetime of corruption.

    1. 7:26 from our menial jobs and minimum wages we support family and friends, some on our countries, no welfare, no Obamacare, no Obamaphone, lots of persecutions and discrimination, and we still make it work...
      --but you with your robust salaries and office jobs, language skills and high schoolings can't even support yourselves?
      --And are bitching about our stealing "your jobs", really?

    2. How will he, of he is in favor of the Cartels, just stay tuned, your in for an adventure. Keep in mind he wants the Cartels kingpins out of prison, yes even if they murdered innocent people.
