Mexicans See Through Fraud in Ballot Box

Associated Press

Transparent ballot boxes, designed to prevent stuffing, were used in Mexico for the first time during weekend voting in Morelos state, southeast of Mexico City.

The leader of the opposition National Action Party, Rafael Fernandez Rodriguez, said that the new boxes "had very good results."

"It's progress but it's not a panacea," he said, "because the PRI people (the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party) have demonstrated throughout their history a very broad array of magic resources, and they can come up with other new ones."
