GIANYAR, BALIPOST.com – The Gianyar Regency General Election Commission (KPU) together with the Gianyar Bawaslu held an activity to destroy excess 2024 election ballot papers at the Gianyar Regency KPU Logistics Warehouse Tuesday (13/2). The destruction of thousands of ballot papers was witnessed by Forkompinda and the Gianyar District Prosecutor’s Office.

Chairman of the Gianyar Regency KPU, I Wayan Mura, SH. MH, accompanied by the Head of Intelligence at the Gianyar District Prosecutor’s Office, Komang Adi Wijaya, said he had destroyed thousands of unused ballot papers. “This ballot paper was not used because it was damaged, the ballot papers were evenly distributed across 5 ballot paper variants,” he said.

Mura explained that 2,754 ballot papers for the presidential and vice presidential elections were destroyed. There are 200 DPR Member Election Ballot Papers, 74 DPD Member Election Ballot Papers.

He explained that there were 311 Provincial DPRD Member Election Ballot Papers. There are 8 ballot papers for DPRD members in electoral district 1, 8 ballot papers for members of DPRD in electoral district 2, 61 ballot papers for members of DPRD in electoral district for electoral district 3, 24 ballot papers for members of DPRD in electoral district for electoral district 4, 24 ballot papers for members of DPRD in electoral district for electoral district. 5 as many as 24 sheets, 24 ballot papers for DPRD members for electoral district 6 and 31 ballot papers for members of DPRD for electoral district 7.

He emphasized that in the logistics distribution of ballot papers in each variant of the election type, the number of ballot papers corresponds to the number of final voter lists (DPT) plus 2 percent. This 2 percent ballot reserve readiness is used, among other things, when a voter makes a mistake in voting, the voter can only change it once.

Wayan Mura added that these spare ballot papers are also used to replace damaged ballot papers. It is possible that because the public was involved in the folding process, damaged ballot papers escaped the censorship and were counted. Damaged ballot papers can be replaced using spare ballot papers.

“Reserve letters can be used if they are still available for additional DPTB voters or voters who have moved to vote and also those using KTP, in this case the DPK is a list of voters who are not registered with the DPT but are still within the scope of the village area,” he explained.
