A large number of people ready to cast their vote was standing in line since the early morining hours of Sunday, June 7th; many of them upset due to delay in the opening of most of the polling stations throughout the State.
The National Electoral Institute (INE) reported that 100 percent of Yucatan boxes were open and operating normally. However, the State Citizen Participation and Electoral Institute (SIEPAC) reported that the stations were fully functional until 11:00 am, when they were supposed to be open since 8:00 am.
In the case of Mérida, the Electoral Council reported shortly after 12:30 pm, five percent of the boxes were still closed.
The SIEPAC recorded until 1 pm, 60 reports of incidents, in different districts statewide.
