A winner was declared in the Baja California governor’s election, Sunday July 9, only to be retracted after officials declared an error may have occurred during the counting process. The first results showed the National Action Party (PAN) candidate Vega de Lamadrid with a three-point lead over Castro Trenti of the the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), with nearly 98 percent of the votes counted. Shortly after, the count was halted and both parties announced victory.

Officials state the error is from a computer glitch and likely could affect only one percent of the count. Both parties have agreed to accept the final count, which will start on Wednesday and finish by the weekend.
