Afghan electoral commission invalidated ballots
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On September 10, 2009, the UN-backed Electoral Complaints Commission (ECC) invalidated ballots from the previous month's presidential election from polls in Kandahar, Ghazni and Paktika provinces. The ECC found "clear and convincing evidence of fraud" at 51 polling stations in Kandahar, 27 polling stations in Ghazni and five polling stations in Paktika, including "unfolded ballots, votes for candidates inserted inside bundles for other candidates, miscounted ballots, missing material, uniformity of markings, seal numbers which did not match numbers on the record of seals and lists of voters with numerous fictitious card numbers."
