At least one independent monitoring group reported a turnout rate lower than the official one. Hagamos Democracia, the local partner of the U.S. government-funded National Democratic Institute, said its count of 1,000 polling stations put turnout at about 48 percent. The count had a margin of error of 1.8 percentage points.

NDI president Ken Wollack said he could not comment on the official turnout rate but noted that Hagamos Democracia's count had a low margin of error and successfully projected the vote's outcome: 56 percent for Lobo and 38 percent for Santos.
