Brazil's Court of Audit of the Union (TCU) found no discrepancies in the ballot papers of the electronic ballot boxes that were analyzed during an audit conducted after the presidential runoffs held last week, Agencia Brasil reported Tuesday.

According to the TCU, no divergences were found by the court's technicians in the 604 ballot papers analyzed based on information provided by the Superior Electoral Court (TSE).

The bulletin is printed by the clerks after the end of voting and posted on the door of the polling station. The document contains the number of votes per candidate, null votes, blank votes, and data about the voting equipment.

The report with the consolidated information will be attached to the process that deals with the audit of the elections. The final outcome is due in early 2023.

According to the TCU, its work in auditing the ballot boxes aims to ensure the reliability of public information passed on to society. The court is also part of the Election Transparency Commission, a group chaired by the TSE.

In July, before the elections, the TCU concluded that Brazil's electronic voting system was secure and that there were no relevant risks.
