Just did a quick scan of the online news sources and...

Looks like the voting stations have been busy.
Turnout appears good and here in Santo Domingo the weather is also nice right now so I'm sure that helps.

3 people dead and few injured in Barahona at one of the voting stations.
It appears that a group of PRD people turned up and tried to jump the line.

The crucial moment of the election is the physical transporting of the official certificates from the voting stations to the municipal boards and then to the Central Electoral Board, the JCE.

Monsignor Agripino Nunez, with the ambassador of Spain, the ambassador of Canada, and Santiago Murray, the OAS ambassador in charge of the electoral mission, among others appeared on the Voz de la JCE, the official broadcast of the electoral court, at 10 pm to express his concern. He said on TV that the Administrative Chamber of the JCE had taken and should take all necessary measures so that the electoral police protect the process that is that the voting certificate and the actual box with the votes needs to make it to the municipal board where the results are then sent to the JCE.

?The maximum authorities need to respect the example the Dominican people have given, and the words of the President that he who won, won,? said Monsignor. ?All that are followers, should remember that in 1978, the government of that time tried to not heed the vote of the people, and thus we issue this preventive alert,? said Monsignor, who heads the electoral follow up committee.

?This country has upheld democracy and nobody is going to change it from that road,? said Monsignor on the TV statement. He said he spoke in the name of the Dominican people, and of the ambassadors, to call for a stop to those who want to put a stain on Dominican democracy. ?Those that have perverse ideas, in the name of God and the Virgen de la Altagacia,?respect the will expressed by the Dominican people in the polls,? said Monsignor. He called out with a prayer that God may illuminate all until the results reach the JCE.

Hipolito Mejia has been very very good to the military forces in the Dominican Republic to the extent that those forces have broken the tradition to not enter into political matters by openly supporting his presidency.

In other words all those generals are bought and paid for. Unfortunately, the JCE police are nothing but reassigned military personnel who at the end of the day do what their commanders tell them and these are the men that protect the voting urns and certificates between the voting place and regional JCE headquarters. Very worrisome that there seem to be delays in transportation, perhaps enough to switch boxes. I believe there was a scandal a few months ago that the JCE had ordered printing of hundreds of thousands of ballots beyond the 100% voting capacity of the country.
