The Carter Centre report on the South Sudan elections reports, saying in part; ”While the NEC developed an electronic tabulation system that contained numerous safeguards for data entry, the process was generally not followed as prescribed. This prevented key verification steps from occurring and compromised the accuracy of the results. In some cases officials resorted to manual tabulation and ignored the NEC’s planned data security measures. Frequently, the electronic system that was developed to tabulate results was only partially used or not used at all.”

All these goes to show that indeed an electronic tabulation results system was developed, though it was not used in all instances, as officials in some of the polling stations resorted to manual tabulation of results.

 

Counting of ballots was done at polling stations levels around the country. Results Forms were then transported to the state High Election Committees (SHCs) for tabulation in the state capitals with results from each state then transmitted to the National Elections Commission (NEC) in Khartoum.
