    Areas where Jokowi – Ma’ruf Amin shows dominance comes from polling stations in Central Java and poll stations abroad.

    This Situng feature introduced by the KPU is basically the vote recapitulations gathered by each polling station working committees (KPPS) that are printed over a C1 form, which then gets scanned before it is published online.
