National Registry denounces irregularities in local and regional elections

The National Registry of Civil Status has put on the table a worrying finding that has shaken the Colombian electoral field. This Thursday, the organization reported that at least 446 jurors voted more than once in the local and regional elections held on October 29, requesting the Prosecutor’s Office and the Attorney General’s Office to initiate the corresponding investigations.

After an exhaustive verification of the installation records and general voter registration of the 119,875 polling stations installed throughout the country, the Registry Office confirmed the alleged multiple voting by 446 citizens who performed functions as voting jurors.

The general registrar, Hernán Penagos, expressed the determination of the Registry to take measures to prevent this type of irregularities from being repeated in future elections. The implementation of technological tools was announced with the aim of safeguarding the integrity of the electoral process.

Although the Registry presumes the good faith of the citizens who act as voting jurors, it considers it its duty to report any irregularity to the competent authorities. In this case, the Attorney General’s Office and the Attorney General’s Office have been notified so that they can begin the pertinent investigations.

It is important to remember that in last year’s elections, Colombians elected mayors, governors, councilors, deputies and councilors for the period 2024-2027. These representatives assumed their duties on January 1, marking the beginning of a new cycle in the country’s local and regional public management.

The revelation of these irregularities highlights the importance of maintaining transparency and reliability in the electoral process, as well as the need to strengthen control and supervision mechanisms to guarantee the legitimacy of the popular will expressed at the polls.
