Is U.D.P. Chairman connected to Transfer?

Henry Charles Usher

A huge part of the argument is an allegation that U.D.P. Chairman Alberto August was reportedly seen inside the elections office in Cayo North over the weekend.  It is suspected that he may have visited the office to retrieve binders containing voter information.

“When we got the information about this happening we posted somebody there immediately.  As a matter of fact, we got reports on Saturday, the day after Boxing Day that the same person that the legal advisor mentioned, the chairman of the U.D.P. was actually at the elections office on that day.  That office shouldn’t even be opened on a Saturday, why was he there?  Why was he trying to get in there?  So yes we have persons there and we have been trying to get the information, but if it did happen, remember we got this letter on the twenty-fourth, the letter was dated the twenty-second and the elections officer had to move out on the twenty-third, so there was a timeframe in there where we didn’t know about it, you know.  In these rural areas especially, there are a lot of persons who may not have picture ID.  The only way to identify that person if they come to the polls is by viewing the binder.  The binder has the person’s information and also has a picture of the voter.  If any party, if any person is allowed to take those binders out of the office they can change those pictures, they can manipulate the information in the binders and if a person shows up there and purports to be somebody else and the binder matches that person they are allowed to vote and thus you disenfranchise the real person from coming to vote.  So it’s very serious.  Those binders cannot leave that office.”
