Null votes trigger record recounts

The null vote phenomenon will trigger a record number of vote recounts. According to the IFE, there will need to be recounts in almost 20% of the total casillas (27,475 out of 139,700) because the difference between the first and second place finishers was less than the null vote total in the casilla.  This provision was enacted during the last reform of the Cofipe election law, to give greater confidence in the election results. In addition, there will be automatic recounts in 16 of the 300 election districts because the margin of difference was less than 1%.  (Reforma 7/7)
