The persistent rains In the area, it forced the withdrawal of the records to the computer center to be done, in a first section, by river and then by air.
The records processed are all those that have entered the corresponding computer center and went through fingering and verification. On the other hand, the recorded minutes are all those whose votes have been recorded.
For weather reasons, the last electoral records to be processed also include those corresponding to the Cusco and Junín regions.
In the first case, the withdrawal of the records of the districts of Pichari, Megantoni, Kimbiri, Villa Virgen, Villa Kintiarina and the populated centers of Echarate, towards ODPE Urubamba (Cusco) had the valuable support of the Armed Forces and the National Police of Peru. In this case, records of remote populated centers such as Chirumpiari and Lobo Tawantinsuyo had to be retracted.
In turn, the records corresponding to the Chanchamayo ODPE arrived from the district of Vizcatán del Ene. Helicopters also had to be used to transfer the records.
The head of the ONPE, Piero Corvetto, thanked all the staff of the electoral institution for this achievement and confirmed that the final result will reflect the popular will expressed at the polls.
Now it only remains that the electoral records classified as observed, due to a material error, being incomplete, not having data, with challenged votes or other circumstances, be resolved for the corresponding Special Electoral Juries, in order to reach 100% of the minutes counted, that is, all those whose votes have been counted.
According to the usual procedure, the records were processed as soon as they arrived at the computer centers. If they did not present any observations, they were added to the general count and, thereafter, were accounted for.
A record can be observed in one of the following cases: It has been lost or damaged, it is incomplete, data is missing or unreadable, contains an incorrect sum or some other material error, is illegible, has been requested for invalidity or the challenge of one or more votes. The observations will be resolved by the respective special electoral juries (JEE) and, in second instance, by the National Elections Jury (JNE).
Likewise, as evidence of faithful and unrestricted respect for the popular will expressed at the polls, the ONPE publishes on its website the image of the electoral records processed and accounted for in the computer centers.

There the electoral body has published the image of the electoral records, whose copy not only are in the hands of the representatives of the political parties but also in the power of the National Elections Jury, as the supervisory body of the electoral day.
