Could you clarify why it was that Belgium began to ignore the VVAT paper
ballots and not count them?
When there was a discrepancy, I believe you mentioned that the election
officials decided not to bother with counting the paper ballots, perhaps
since the discrepancy wasn't large, and eventually they dropped having
paper ballots altogether. Is this accurate?
Were there ever any legal challenges to the fact that the paper ballot
was no longer being treated as the legal record of the vote, even though
the Belgian law says that the paper vote should have precedence?
Why was/is there no public challenge?
