The computers were at polling stations in locations spread over the whole country. The Federal Interior Department’s Peter Grouwels told VRT News that “There were a total of 100 incidents with the 31,000 computers being used and they are currently being put right”.
The issues are not only confined to voting computers used by voters, but also in some cases with computers used by the polling station presidents. Mr Grouwels added that a total of 240 IT technicians are on hand to ensure that any issues can be resolved quickly.
Meanwhile, a team of around twenty people is following the elections in the Interior Ministry election “cockpit”.
