TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Joko Widodo (Jokowi)-Ma'ruf Amin pair won in four polling stations set up for mentally challenged voters at Bina Larar Harapan Sentosa 2 Social Home for the Mentally Challenged located in Cipayung, East Jakarta, on Wednesday.

"Yes, Mr. Jokowi wins! I want to play with Mr. Jokowi if he wins," Yusuf Fransisco, a mentally challenged voter, said.

At Polling Station (TPS) No 078, incumbent presidential candidate Jokowi got 64 votes, while his challenger, Prabowo Subianto, and his running mate, Sandiaga Uno, bagged 54 votes, while 41 ballots were considered invalid.

At TPS No. 79, Jokowi won with 61 votes, Prabowo Subianto got 55, and 88 ballots were considered invalid.

At TPS No 82, Jokowi grabbed 99 votes, Subianto got 56, and 10 ballots were considered invalid.

At TPS 83, Jokowi got 119, Subianto got 102, and 30 ballots were considered invalid.

Several ballots were considered invalid because they were not pierced, or pierced more than once, or pierced out of the box. Indonesia, the world's fourth-largest democracy, held the biggest and most complex one-day simultaneous legislative and presidential elections on April 17, 2019.

The number of eligible voters this year is a total of 90,779,969. They flocked to polling booths across the country to cast their ballots for their representatives at the House of Representatives (DPR), Regional Representatives Council (DPD), as well as provincial and district/city legislative bodies. They also voted for their preferred pair of presidential and vice presidential candidates.

In addition, 2,086,285 Indonesian nationals overseas were also eligible to exercise their voting rights during the electoral process from April 8 to 14 in various countries.

Chairman of the General Election Commission (KPU) Arief Budiman recently noted that the commission had set up 809,699 polling stations across the country.

According to a quick preliminary count, Jokowi won the presidential election.

The 2019 race was a replay of the contentious 2014 presidential election that exposed the nation's divide, as Joko Widodo (Jokowi) faced retired general Prabowo Subianto.
