The fraud that took place in the July 2 election appears to have been widespread and varied in its forms. Ballot boxes from PRD strongholds have been found in a rubbish dump and electoral officials have been caught burning ballots. Numerous anomalies in the tallying of the votes have been pointed out, and suspicion has fallen on the software used by the IFE
The complaint the PRD submitted to the IFE presented evidence of fraud taking place at around 72,000 of the 130,000 polling places. Lopez Obrador demanded that the IFE order a complete recount of the vote.
Protests have taken place around the country. The largest have been in Mexico City, growing from around half a million on July 8, to a million on July 16 and possibly more than 2 million on July 30.
