Guatemalan Presidential Elections Are Now Over

Guatemalan Presidential Elections Are Now Over

The Guatemalan presidential elections are finally over and we can go back to building a better country and let the new President elect and his team do whatever it is that they do. Below, there’s a screen shot of the almost final results with 53.78% of the votes going to the Partido Patriota and 46.22% to the Partido Líder. You can visit the web page for Tribunal Supremo Electoral (Supreme Electoral Tribunal) for the final results.

Compared to the first voting round, today there was almost nobody there. Compare the photos from the September 11 election process and with today’s photos. Nevertheless, I wanted to experiment with a time-lapse video, so I shot 1,800 photos to create the time-lapse video of the voting center at the cultural center César Brañas. As you can see in some parts of the video, there’s almost nobody; that’s how efficient the voting process was this time. I hope you enjoy the time-lapse video, please, let me know either way.

    Well, well, are you sure there were less voters? According to the TSE, almost 70% of registered voters did vote at Antigua Guatemala. Percentage wise, that’s the same as the September 11 round.

    Yesterday, Antigua Guatemala, votos emitidos: 21,947
    September 11; votos emitidos: 24,261.
    Very very interesting!!

    • Eli, hablando con más gente, todos concuerdan que se veía poca gente y esto no sólo en La Antigua Guatemala sino que en todo el país. Por otro lado, muchos también recalcaron que les tomó menos de un minuto votar, igual para mí, y pues entonces no hubo posibilidad de que se hicieran colas y que se viera tanta gente. Misterio resuelto.

    Ja-ja-ja, me encanta el video, Rudy.  Very well done.  I wish our congressmen could get their jobs done this fast…zip into work, talk a bit, vote, and be done.  But they have a problem with that word, “WORK”.  Like a wise man once said: solo podemos tener esperanza.    😀

    • Eric, it took less than a minute to cast my vote and many people told me the same thing. No wonder there were no lines or queues in most voting centers. Also, the TSE took less than two hours to count all the votes. All in all, I’d say this voting day was pretty swift.
