Page 12: “Election results were transmitted using a system known as TREP – transmission of preliminary election results. TREP was an informal, non-binding information system aimed at increasing the level of transparency of the election results and decreasing the time needed for aggregation of preliminary results. Election results forms were directly transmitted from polling centres on election night via scan (Digital System), or via landline (Voice) in polling centres where there was no internet signal. Despite the use of TREP, the official final aggregation and declaration of election results is carried out by the TSJE after the compilation of all election results forms from polling stations, a process that normally takes a number of weeks after elections days.”

Page 24: “After the counting, election results forms were scanned and transmitted from polling stations to the TSJE via TREP. These results were not considered official but preliminary. The official aggregation of results, called provisional aggregation (cómputo provisorio), started on 23 April at the electoral tribunals based on the results paper forms (actas) received from polling stations. Each electoral tribunal was divided into three rooms, one assigned to each of its three judges, which conducted aggregation simultaneously. The results of provisional aggregation were transmitted to the TSJE for final and official aggregation. Electoral tribunals are not competent to resolve challenged election results forms (actas impugnadas). Results forms that are challenged should be sent to the TSJE for resolution.”
