Parallel Vote Tabulation (pvt) in Election Law

Technique of results verification. This methodological tool is typically based on the collection of official results from a random sample of polling stations or from all polling stations. It often includes a quantitative analysis of the polling operations, taking into account a number of factors (e.g. voter turnout at different times of the day, opening time of polling stations and vote counting at the end of the day). These results are consolidated to give a precise overview of what national results should look like. This independent tabulation of results, compared with those produced by the electoral administration, can reveal potential manipulation. Conversely, it can also confirm that the will of the voters has been respected. This methodology is mainly used by domestic observers or media. (See: Quick count)
