  1. You might wonder why that’s happening.

  2. Their government is super corrupt so I’m not surprised

  3. This is why electronic voting is such a bad idea. If you make it easier to commit fraud, of course a corrupt government will want to try that. Even a less corrupt government will have a hard time resisting the temptation

    Removing all the opposition candidates can be done in one line of code. Doing the same with pen-and-paper voting is going to be a lot harder

  4. Im in DR, and that wasnt the only problem, electoral locations were closed in the ones that were open only half or less of the voting tables were open

  5. Electricity distribution is shit,
    water system is archaic— at best a few hours of running water a day, and even then do NOT get it near your mouth—-,
    internet is slow af ( outside of a couple of big towns ).
    But they thought electronic voting was a good idea…….smh.

  6. Trump: “You know the Dominicans, they really do the best elections”.

  7. PAPER.

    BALLOTS.

    Come on, guys, democracy worked just fine for hundreds of years with paper ballots and hand counts. WHY CAN’T WE GO BACK TO THAT?

  8. standard Russian Democratic design, it’s no problem comrade just pick the one on the screen

  9. “Hey! Did anyone hear what happened in the this place called… do-min-ican? I think they got the right idea, someone get me Mitch on the phone.. Ivanka? Ivanka! Dial Mitch on this phone for me idk how.”

  10. Hope this doesn’t give the repugs ideas.

  11. When that happens in the US in 9 months, elections will continue.

  12. Maybe they won’t notice

  13. They are learning from the USA

  14. Mayhaps a harbinger of the way things go in U.S. in November … no Democrats on the screen, list, or check off. Just say’in.

    You know how the Repugs take such suggestions like those the event in the Dominican indicate, right? They weaponize them.

  15. My father is from Dominican Republic, I’ve never been.. My dad wanted to take me as a child to meet my family but my mom (who’s white and born in America) was afraid I would get kidnapped because we would be outside of the tourist areas where my grandparents lived. And as I got older I just never had the money. But my Dad told me that they arm the borders of the tourist cities with ak47s and guns like that.. Also my grandparents got robbed and my 80 something year old grandfather got pistol wiped really badly because they were selling ice (because they had a generator that could make it) and they thought my grandparents were rich. All they got was some silverware and my grandfather’s American quarter collection. They also held the neighbor kidnapped and her husband was a police officer.. the robbers were later found “mysteriously” dead. So I can see why my mom didn’t want me to go.

  16. No surprise. The PRD is stunningly corrupt.
